Ahhh... Better idea dig your pit... The line the pit with cinder blocks. Now when you lay your cinder blocks put a few with the holes facing the dirt and a few with the holes up and down. Now keep stacking the block but tapper inward like a cone slightly with each row. The all you need to do is add a top of some sort.
This exact design was used as our drain field for over 50 years till we updated the system in the yard. Our was dug down over 28 feet ot the bottom and about 10 foot in diameter. The bottom was lined with sand.
But for using a 55 gallon drum you could but it would have to be plastic. Steel will eventually rot out and fail.

LOL... I'll take that as a compliment... Actually I am a gear head for Cummins Diesels...
