walt_l, I'm going to beg to differ about both cans being fuel cans. These are military cans; not Walmart and Kmart cans. Walmart demands that the cans they sell be different from Kmart cans so that you can't get a refund for a Kmart can at Walmart, and so that you have to buy a Walmart spout for a Walmart can. The military does not play that Walmart vs Kmart drama. The military has for a long time and still does make different tops for different cans. From the beginning of the US jerry can; fuel cans and water cans have been different, and even today MFC are different from MWC.

The wide mouth can you have will probably hold fuel just fine, but I think that it was probably for some other petro-liquid like motor oil.

The jug is not the weak link. The little snap top cap that is for the vent is what I don't trust. Those little vent caps have been what I have observed to be the failure point of cans that have been in service.

You are probably right. All I am reporting is how they are market and what I have been sold. Other than the opening I can find NO difference between the two cans. I'll start filling them this weekend and will let you know if I experience any leaks.

Just spoke with a petroleum engineer friend of mine. Due to different formulations of gasoline at different times of the year, I asked him if he were going to store gasoline, which formulation would he store.

He confirmed that there are more volitiles in the winter formulation so for storage you would want "heavier" gas and he recommended "summer gas".

Yes you will need the Viton gaskets for gas. They are plastic and do not take paint well; unless it is surplus and you want to clean them up....I've got a friend that has tried to clean the surplus ones up. If cosmetics is not an issue to you, then you should be satisfied.

I have a fleet of NATO cans that I purchased from D.O a couple of years ago (not the widemouth ones). Went to turn over the fuel in them and found that all the seals are badly swollen and splitting. No leakage yet but I am concerned about the seals disintegrating and contaminating the fuel.

They are all red seals, look to be rubber.

Where is the best place to find the correct, gas safe seals for these cans? I need about a dozen of em.

Also, a nozzle that doesn't suck would be cool too. Mine (new production, probably Chinese) worked great last time I used it, now it leaks like crazy.

Curious about octane boosters. They're sold nearly everywhere, but I've never heard anyone comment on their use or effectiveness.

1) Do they work?
2) If so, is there a downside to using them?
3) Assuming they do work, would there be any issues adding them to storage gas that has been treated with Sta-bil?
4) The Gas I have is 87-88 Octane (don't remember which) with Ethanol.

Thanks for any insight.

FWIW I will offer an opinion on octane boosters. I don't know what benefit (if any) octane boosters will offer you for stored fuel. Generally the octane boosters are marketed as injector cleaners rather than fuel stabilizers. I would spend my money on the Sta Bil Marine with ethanol treatment and be done with it.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I do have the fuel treated with Marine Sta Bil. I trust the Sta Bil to do its job, and was more curious if the octane boosters would actually produce a significant increase in the octane rating of fuel, (stored fuel, as well as adding it to my tank). My truck needs mid grade (87-88) at a minimum. If these products do actually work as advertised, I was thinking it would be an easy way to be sure the fuel was GTG for rating. The reason I mentioned that my storage gas is treated with Sta Bil is that I'm not sure if there would be any adverse or detrimental effect in adding an octane booster to the mix.

Regards,
G Jones

For diesel: Empty the can as well as you are able to, then add gas; your BOV will not notice the 1/50th 1/11th of a quart of diesel diluted in 5 gallons of gas.

For benzine: Add gas because your BOV will LIKE the benzine. Do you know that benzine was the authorized fuel for supercharger operation on the Mercedes SSK and SSKL of the 1930s?


ETA I was wrong when I first posted this.

ETA2 The Mercedes SSK and SSKL were not authorized to operate the supercharger when using gasoline as the fuel. You can probably add the SS to this list of cars also.

How about for weapons cleaning oil? I bought a couple of those used Jerry cans from DO. They came in a blue color and one of them had an embossed tag on it that said "Waffen Reinigungsöl." German. They are kind of beat up, and one of the 2 cans has a little problem with the latch. But, hey... they were only $29. I think I can use them. I was going to throw some isopropyl alchohol in there and swish it around and then get rid if it. I plan to store kerosene in both cans.

A study published in the 1950s by an army officer stated that in a 55 gallon drum of gasoline there is left a quart of gas that cannot be gotten out. The report said that the total amount of irretrievable fuel from 11 jerry cans was also one quart.

So what would be remaining in one jerry can would be 1/11 of a quart.

There are about 21 quarts in a jerry can

The mix ratio would be 1/231

Or said another way: If your car gets 20 mpg then that mix ratio is the same as burning a quart of oil every 1100 miles.

Now if you pour that 1/231 mix into a tank with 15 gallons of other gas the ratio becomes about 1/1000––you won't notice that small amount of oil in the gas.


I'd say the same would go for kerosene.

Most of you already know but I learned the hard way and I wanted to make it clear to the unknowing...

Metal Jerry cans are not the best way to store / transport Fuel.

They are susceptible to being dented, they are prone to rust, and they will explode when exposed to flames.

The Scepter MFC's have none of these flaws.

JB weld? I think they even make a special gas tank epoxy Or just empty it and re-weld/braze it, it is metal after all.

I bought one of these to use to hold lawn mower gas. I just got it today and have painted it red. I don't give a crap about having red gas cans for legal reasons but want red cans for the wife if I'm not home and she needs to use it. If it's not simple and easy to understand, she'll put the wrong gas in the various pieces of power equipment.

It holds about 2.5 gallons. Mine is not marked "Not for fuel use" but I do think that it's pretty cool how they got around the BS CARB rules. These cans from DO are great and appear to be VERY well made. I'm pleased with the 10 liter can.

I also have some of the 20 liter cans from DO. Mine were from the original cans that they were selling about a year or so ago. Mine had the red gaskets as well. Those gaskets are NOT compatible with gasoline. Replace them with the proper black ones and you won't have any problems.

I bought some of the 5 liter cans (1.3 gallon) from Old Grouch. They came awhile back and looked good. Very minor surface rust but I wire brushed that off and painted one red. I used my handy little label maker and labeled the gas can for weed eater and chain saw gas 50:1 mix.

I went to get a couple more and now they all have plastic screw on nozzles. I have never been a fan of the plastic spouts so I am looking for the "old" style ones with the metal clip on spouts.

RiftWeaver, you should look at the NATO cans from DO linked on the first page of this thread

EPXY37, there may be some Scepter MFC cans available from ebay, but as far as I know the sources have been depleted. In the research that I have the caps and cap parts have fallen under the ban hammer of the EPA. I would also suggest to you to give some serious thought to the DO cans too.

I'd like to acquire or make the fuel pickup caps and tubes for the DO Jerry cans. This would be used for extended running of a pair of Honda EU2000's.
Can anyone point me to a source for these or to DIY instructions
