The old galvanized or painted lamp oil cans are really nice. They feature a wide mouth to pour the fuel in and a spicket to fill lanterns and lamps. They are a tad hard to find these days especially new one but they're still out there.
Tj, I had saved a write up you did a long time ago about oil lamps, lanterns and fuel. You mentioned the galvanized or painted lamp oil cans then and I have been looking off and on since to no avail.
Most of that lamp oil will go out to the BOL for long term storage as I still have plenty here at the house. I'm going to ask a guy I know who works for a fuel company delivering bulk oil and see if he has anything that may work in the 1-5 gal range. I've known the guy a couple of years and never thought to ask him till tonight.....
