In the market for a 5 gallon can and just made myself dizzy looking online for a gas can... the different styles... the reviews... the prices...

Holy [censored]...!

Curious to see if there're any strong opinions here in favor of one brand vs another...? One style over another?

I like the $40 one on Amazon that is metal with spring loaded closer and large yellow funnel. Plastic is garbage.

Aren't they regulated to have that idiotic safety valve that lasts about 2 months before breaking/leaking?

Honestly, go on Craigslist and find one of those old school metal ones and buy that. Save yourself the hassle.

I hate the new "environmentally" friendly cans. I spill more fuel with those that my old ones leaked out in 5 years.

I bought a blitz plastic can and then a "water" spout adapter and vent like this. Works like the old style.

I wish I had known about the new cans, I tossed out 2 that had 5 year old gas in them, not knowing any better.

My mom has 2 of the old school metal military type cans that I have claimed when she passes.

This is what you want. I put this inside my Montero while 4x4. No fumes, sealed shut. I love the
Wavian NATO cans. They come in 2.5, and 5 gallon containers.

Best of Luck,

Maybe........ But I HATE the idea of carrying any gas can in the passenger compartment!

I'd go on craigslist and buy a Blitz gas can. The other manufacturers in the market right now can't make one that won't leak or work right. Only reason Blitz went out of business was because some people were dumping fuel onto a fire and the cans were exploding. If you don't want to buy used, then buy the spill proof brand ones. They're supposed to be better than the other [censored] on the market.
