If it came down to potential cancer later or staying alive now with hot water, I'll choose the hot water. ;-) However, I don't carry water in the car in bulk and leave it there. I only load up with a gallon or so when on a road trip and keep it in a cooler many times.

and that really depends on the plastic container, the bigger concern would be with a clear container and algae growing in the water.
But like Jax said, you'd only want to put fresh water in anyways, aside from the health concerns, you also increase the weight the car has to lug around, day in and day out, decreasing gas mileage.

it all comes don to risk assessment - likely hood against outcome. If your going out by your self be prepared, the further out the more prepared you need to be.

I go hiking a lot by my self and carry 1 day of food and 2 days of water, both of which can last at a push for 3-4 days. I study the topographic maps of there area and always know where the water ways are. It doesnt get too cold in the west the lowest in winter at night is 0 so an emergency blanket and poncho fit nicely into a small pouch. Basic 1st add with extra bandage. Then finally I give my wife specific timings and areas I will be going so if im not back by x time she knows something went wrong and knows what to do.

That is basic mission planning at work....

nearby place for food and rest and stuff like that and have and extra flash light and food/water.
