does anyone know would 8 oz of battery acid with 2 gallons of water eat through a plastic bucket?

Have you even seen pure sulfuric acid? What kind of container is it stored in? Battery casings are plastic and the jugs of the pure stuff are simply plastic bladders inside cardboard boxes. Acid has no effect on glass, plastic, masking tape and tons of other things.
well i figured i was just makin sure cause the guy at the store said it would but that sounded worng cause as you said it's stored in a plastic bag.
Your mixture won't eat through your bucket..
Certain acids can and do affect certain materials. Hydrofluoric will certainly etch glass. Sulfuric will oxidize most any tape. Nitric acid will work so well that you'll have no hide left at all..Mix Nitric and Hydrochloric and you can dissolve gold..
Phosphoric acid is fairly potent straight but many of us drink it everyday in our Colas..Acetic acid is consumed on salads in the form of vinegar but you wouldn't want to use the pure form for that.
The most pure form of sulfuric acid is stored in glass. The watered down versions are stored in plastic.
