Fuel Can Safety 101

As long as they are UL Listed, they are considered "approved portable containers" by the National Fire Code. Be sure not to over-fill them as they require space for expansion or they will vent liquid, possibly causing a problem. This is more prevalent in warmer environments.

When filling, have the container out of the vehicle on the ground and maintain contact between the fuel pump nozzle and the metalic mouth of the can for bonding, which reduces the chance of static electricity build-up from free fuel flow.

My CTD catalog had 4 of the steel NATO ones for 120$. I paid 50$ a piece two years ago for NATO cans. Harbor freight has red metal
Cans with us round spout made in Indiana for 35$ a piece but the spouts are crap.
I'd love to be able to get a few more cans but always have a fear of soccer mon texting in the gov motors Tahoe running into me, come close a few times in bronco and on the bike.

From what I understand, they're fine as long as they are actually fuel cans. I'm already planning on putting a pair on the back of my Bronco

i must say that this forum has the highest knowledge/harassment factor of any i have endured. and i mean endured.

i don't know if it is because of the apartheid/newbie system or not. it seems that there are a lot of meatheads here who only want to slap mud with their buddies, and ultimately f*ck the newbies. for me, that is incongruous with the whole idea of an online, co-operative forum. and to say that it used to be worse is just rewarding prior bad behavior.

all i know is that for most people, all you hear is "use the search function". well, if you are only going to respond in that way, then don't respond.
common sense will prevail.

in fact, why respond at all. it has already been said. IF SOMEONE ULTIMATELY USES THE SEARCH FUNCTION, THEN YOUR RESPONSE IS SUPERFLUOUS .

if anyone would like to eat my ass, then let's go private. i would welcome it. let's not waste valuable forum space.

"but also thanks for the help."

It would appear the staff doesn't share your opinion of what's superfluous.

...and yes, you're mistaken about my intent. The OP asked for a quote of Texas law, and I suggested he read it directly instead of getting it heresay.

We don't care how you did it over on some lame Corvette forum. They have their culture, we have ours. If you don't like it here there ain't anybody going to beg you to stay.

I went to good ole harbor freight today, and to my surprise they had, guess what? not one, but TWO 5 gallon NATO jerry cans so i picked em up for the good price of $40 ea. and one was 20% off! so yeah i just spent $70 ish bucks on gas cans that wern't a need but a want lol but whatever... Best part is, theyre made in AMERICA i guess you can say im happy

Theyre these right herr:
http://www.midwestcan.com/static.asp?path=2840,3462

ill find a way to fab a spout for it, i hate the CARB spill-proof one but whatever, one will be re-painted and used for water.

Get a large rubber bladder and put it inside the one you intend for water.
