Great Emergency Fuel Can

Thu Jan 28, 2021 9:24 am

Have been keeping my eye out for a decent fuel can that could be used to carry extra fuel on the rare occasion that might be necessary. Not a fan of plastic fuel cans, though the Rotomolded one seems pretty sturdy and I was considering it, except the craptastic pour spout which isn't vented, so slow and 'gluggy'. Then I found this little gem. 10L NATO mil spec Wavian Jerrycan, manufactured by the same company that has been making them since WWI (and not in China). Really heavy-duty - 0.09 mm cold-rolled steel construction, leak proof gasket-sealed bayonet type latching & locking cap and vented spout, interior treated to prevent rusting. OSHA and DOT approved,, and there is a CARB approved spout available for it (I opted for the easy-pour spout - never found a CARB spout that actually functioned without leaking and spewing gas all over the place). And it fits upright in the frunk nicely. Sold at a lot of 4-wheel shops world-wide, on Amazon, at Grainger warehouses and Northern Tool (US), but I found the best price on ebay.
