Whats the actual/realistic policy with customs say if I had like four 5 gallon jugs in the back? Thanks

I came across on the Niagara Falls bridge, the first time I've crossed there. I pulled up to the booth. The inspector asked "Citizen of..?" "U.S." I reply as I offer my open passport.
"Anything to de..." He pauses, sniffs the air, starts scenting like a bloodhound to discover the source of the odor wafting his way. "It's my biodiesel. I run the car on it."
"The converted french fry stuff?"
I'm shocked! He actually knows about biodiesel and the difference from vegetable oil.
We talked briefly. He never asked to check the trunk where I had four 5 gallon jugs in addition to the contents of the fuel tank.
What would I have done had I been questioned about the fuel not in the tank? I was ready to claim that I buy my biodiesel in the states, that, to my knowledge, there is no retail source of biodiesel in Canada, and that I had taken the precaution of bringing ample amounts so that I didn't run out.
