When you use the words "jerry can", what's the style you're actually looking for? NATO? Spector? Blitz?

How about the new flat ones?

Scepter MFC's...

'cept CARB laws have banned new product purchase in the USA

tho' they can still be purchased on ebay and the likes
mostly 2nd hand... but sometimes unused...

tho' they usually net a costly purchase price

Don't get confused with the Scepter civilian CARB legal
fuel cans sold currently... all CARB compliant cans suck ballz.

here's what the Scepter MFC's (military fuel cans) look like...

I have been through a lot of different fuel cans and in my opinion the regular nato cans are the best! I have 8 new old stock cans, even with the old gaskets they don't leak, Upright on their sides or laying flat even in summer when they expand from the heat. They used to be cheap and available but now your federal and state overlords wouldn't want you to leak a few hydrocarbons into the atmosphere ! So go get yourself a couple shitty plastic cans with the carb approved nozzles that leak worse than anything a 3rd grader could put together, and say thank you.

Totally agree. The fucking CARB cans leak more gas trying to figure out how to use the spout then a normal old can. Obviously the jackasses engineering these spouts have never actually used them. Unfortunately, I live in California and it is hard to get normal cans. Places won't ship standard NATO cans to Cali and some other states.

But, if you can get these shipped to your state, or get creative , these are decent:

I might have obtained a few (please don't tell Al Gore)

Gotta get the NATO Cans though, not the "NATO Style", which are crap.

For good used Scepter cans call up www.supplycaptain.com they have both gas and diesel cans available. Reasonable price and you can also get new cap gaskets to go with them.

Not a single gas or Diesel can either.

Got 2 of these babies and I like em. Just replace those caps with some home depot bits. Very strong but the caps do suck.

RIF.

You need to call them. They don't list them on their site.

Take your own advice, you didn't say that. And you listed the site, not the number.

Ummmmmm, no: Reading is fundamental, if you had looked at my original reply:

Sorry I didn't bold the "call up" part for the slow ones out there.

I listed the site so the phone # would be handy. I'm not in the habit of doing everything for folks out there, but for the handicapped:

CALL 845-236-1110 M-F 8am-4pm EST
