I've been harvesting lava and producing biomass to generate MJ and EU on my FTB world (Mindcrack mod pack, default gregtech settings), but I'm starting to get confused by the large array of containers (cells, tin cans, aluminum cans, capsules, buckets) available to store liquids.
It's kind of hard to tell when containers will be consumed and how containers can be filled.
I'm curious if there is any difference between using tin cans and tin cells. With gregtech enabled, tin cells are pretty expensive (1:1 tin ingot to container ratio), while tin cans are still created at a 4:1 ratio.
Is there any reason to use cells to store biomass/lava over just tin cans? I know cells are not interchangeable in most recipes, but in terms of actual liquid storage, do they have any advantage over tin cans?
