What's Inside A Military Jerry Can?

Recommended Comments


I use military surplus plastic Scepter 5 gal Fuel Cans.  Very heavy duty plastic and you can toss them around and don't seem to crack.  When they puff up because of temperature differences they don't burst.  The reason I use plastic is because metal fuel cans rubbing against each other over time causes metal fatigue.  The metal literally rubs thru creating holes.  We had to watch a video on fuel cans when the US military transitioned to plastic only.  They showed in the video pictures of cans that cracked and developed holes spilling fuel because of metal fatigue.  And also pictures and video of vehicles burning because of that leaked fuel.
