Sceptor Jerry Cans $45

Looks like a pretty good deal if you are in the area...

Re: Sceptor Jerry Cans $45

Those are a good price.

BTW, I've heard some anecdotal stories about the California Highway Patrol cracking down on non-red gas cans (not sure if just a red strap is OK, or not enough indication), and them checking the manufacture date of cans, or at least visible cans. Believe they need to be pre 2006 (pre CARB rules).

Both great sources (I've bought from LCI), but those cans are water-only cans, not for fuel.

Got that right. I don't spill more than 2-3 drops when using a siphon.

Re: Sceptor Jerry Cans $45

They all have water in them, and no you cannot look - is the correct answer.

I have spilled far more gas after these things came into being then ever before. Bad designs with bad materials.
