Everytime ive found the nato cans in good shape Ive picked some up.....my first three were swiss and not in great shape....so painted blue for kerosene.

Lked them, so found new ones and ordered 3, then saw if I ordered 4 Id get a free spout..ordered 4 more..(hey its a free spout)

Well I watched Mad Max.....gas as valuable as water.....found a deal on new unissued british cans....so got 4

Well there is a thread up that linked to dutche optic and now that they are banned I couldnt resist ordered 4 more from dutche optic.......

When they came I was so impressed I ordered another 4...just like land, they aint making them no more

um, just counted.....22.................glad im divorced, a woman would really bitch about that I think Gonna try to stop now.........unless of course I come across a steal on them... I only have 3 good nosles so now maybe I obsess on those ?

I want at a minimum of 6 more, but then again that's only 30 gallons per bov if needed...so maybe I need 18 more.....then some for kerosene. Yeah....I see what you mean!

Damn you. You forced me to order a 4 pack from Deutsche Optik.

5 gallon containers are what they are.

It gets interesting when you start messing with 15 gallon and up fuel containers, fuel transporters, fuel tanks, extra fuel tanks, and on and on and on.

I have 10 scepters and a mess of 1 gallon and 2.5 gallon and 5 gallon cheap plastic cans.

These days I have a couple 15 gallon dot accepted fuel tanks for gas but I plan to keep them stationary and use them for kerosene.

I won't get into various fuel tanks, both factory and home made.

I have never been a jerry can collector. But this 'meeting' caused me to purchase two 4 packs. But that's all I am buying. I can stop any time I want. I am NOT an addict.

My name is Kellevil...

Group buy?

I'm joining this meeting of FCA.

I've been googling for a larger container for the garage (25-50 gallons). Not a lot of information out there, it seems.

Short answer would be 30 gal and 55 gal steel drums. They are inexpensive; only about $5 each on some craigslist ads. They are safe when you follow conventional basic safety practices, like not smoking over an open fuel container. Get a super siphon and you're in business for under $20 total.

Other choices include an in bed fuel tank for a pickup.

Quarterbore said all he wanted was 2 cans, and 18 cans later he thinks he can stop
