Surplus store is your best bet if you cant find any left on the 4x4 sites.


But i'd recommend going to into the surplus store to buy, so you can check for rust inside of the cans.

some people had bad luck with the fuel cans from Major Surplus that i had posted about on the blue forum, but both of the ones i got were in great condition...great meaning, no internal rust, fair exterior condition, no leaks when vertical or horizontal. worked great on the mojave trip, not a single drop wasted, and help up nice and secure in the mounts.

ORW still sells the Jerry cans, standard 10 gal. with the metal Bung cap they dont leak a bit laying on their side. the surplus ones I bought were rusted out, I had to fill em with cheap gas and a bunch of sand and let em slosh around for about a week, then I rinsed em out and then used naval jelly on the inside to stop the rust. now after all that work I think I saved 10 bucks by not buying the new ones. lol, But the surplus ones do got a cool german word on em and little pop out reflectors that show what kind of fuel is in em. I guess I was one of the unlucky ones on that deal.

jerry can holders and straps. using ratchet straps now, the picture was just a regular tie down that came with the jerry can holders.

i was of the understanding that blitz cans leaked. also, there is a rim on the bottom of the blitz cans, that prevent it from fitting in the jerry can holders.
