if diluted down to 40% PET is supposed to be ok but i still wouldnt
use them. i use 1 gallon "demi john" glass fermenters from a homebrew
shop. look in a local free ads paper and would will nearly always
find them for sale (a lot of households have tried brewing wine and
want to get rid of them). i also have lots of 2.5litre glass bottles
that i got from university. the science departments go through lots
of them each week. go in and find a lab technician and offer to pay
for them (they'll probably let you have them free they were just
normally thrown in a skip), tell them youll be back in a month. i got
lots of empty methanol bottles this way. rinse well!
