I think the main concern w/aluminum and flammable/critical liquids is fatigue (and resulting fire or braking hazard)

Fatigue limit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Other structural metals such as aluminium and copper, do not have a distinct limit and will eventually fail even from small stress amplitudes"
