Re: CARRYING GASOLINE ON BOARD
Have never had an issue in not carrying gasoline in in red cans, but it could be used as an excuse to pull you over, just like not having mudflaps.
I've used red Wedco cans, old NATO jerrycans that I painted, and a variety of Scepter cans, some of which are red, and some of which only have a red strap on them. I'm using Scepters almost exclusively now, so at a minimum, I'll always make sure to use the correctly colored strap on them depending on if I'm carrying gas (red strap) or diesel (yellow strap), if not the properly colored cans themselves.
BTW, fuel cans are an easy target for thieves, so keep them locked up.
