Re: Fuel/Gas Sceptor cans current info/price/sellers

The first question is CARB vs. non-CARB? Non-CARB will complicate your search dramatically, but they don't leak, as compared to the CARB cans.

For non-CARB, IMO your best best will be to find some NATO cans. Keep in mind there are at least two sizes, non compatible, of can openings if you plan on using an associated spout. Personally, I prefer a Super Siphon over a spout. There are also used Scepter fuel cans available on eBay, though most seem "well used".

Haven't kept track of the best sources of NATO cans.

For plastic, your best option is probably Scepter, but they are hard to find, as they are all non-CARB, and not for sale to the public in the US.

Re: Fuel/Gas Sceptor cans current info/price/sellers

From my limited experience, the retailers that still have Specters on their sites, typically have a statement that the item is Restricted Availability (RA), for sale only to Military and Law Enforcement agencies. If you've found a seller who will sell to you, please let us know.

Re: Fuel/Gas Sceptor cans current info/price/sellers

I have done a bunch of searching for how to get some NEW Scepter cans....

...and I have determined that if we have someone IN Canada or going TO Canada, they could be obtained.

There is no problem with importing into the US, you just can't sell them here.

Soooo who is going to Canada?

Can you say Group Buy ?
