NATO surplus fuel cans

Here are the NATO surplus fuel cans I bought for $25 each. They arrived in fairly good shape, with some dirt and scraped paint on the outside, and an ounce of so of left over fuel on the inside. Best part about the cans are the removeable indicators for the type of fuel. You can pull them out and rearrange them depending on the fuel.

Rattle-canned them in green and yellow. Paint turned out "good from far, but far from good".

Re: NATO surplus fuel cans

Here's where I bought them, though I don't see them listed anymore. I think I found a few other sites, including eBay, with the same jerry cans however. If I come across any more sites, I'll post them here.

Look to be the same cans, though these are more expensive but come with spouts.

Re: NATO surplus fuel cans

I bought 3 in Fort Collins Colorado last year. Only 3 out of 50 or so looked good. I'm leery about on-line orders and want to pick them myself if used.

Sure, now you tell me.

In person is always better, especially when cheaper! Are they the same style with the fuel indication plates?
