Default SF Bay area: Costco has good gas cans for cheap

My local Costco (Redwood city), just got in a shipment of 5 gallon gas cans. They are selling them for ~$14 each.

They are of wonderful quality, considering the price. The material is probably 80-90% the thickness of my rotopax (at $60 each). These are not thin walled flimsy cans.

The spigot system is exactly compatible with my rotopax also, so the "water" spouts will fit if you want to transport water. They also fit into the jerry can holders on my trailer.

http://www.cochaser.com/blog/scepter...allon-gas-can/

All in all, it's a good deal on some nice gasoline storage.

Meh, still a plastic Jerry can with a crappy spout.

I go to the antique fairs and flea markets and pick up real Jerry cans for $5 each. Surplus spouts are everywhere for cheap as well.

Can u get the normal spout?

I see epa.prk is not calling it a spillproof nozzle anymore. That nozzle has spilled more gas then any other.

I still prefer jr racing summit racing jugs.

"real" jerry cans still kind of suck, the rubber gasket always tears and leaks fuel.

This is the style you want: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/produ...FY17fgodlmcCgg

I bought these last time. They work great. Got replacement lids on Amazon and use a super siphon to fill the tank of my truck.

I definitely like how the gas/water/diesel flows from those type of cans but the are a lot bulkier than normal cans. That is the only downfall I see to those

This is a good deal OP....thanks. i have several of these cans and they are thick walled and heavy duty.
The EZ Pour spouts fit these well......I don't know about y'all, but I cannot use the EPA CARB type spouts that come on gas cans these days.....it takes hours to get the gas out and it spills everywhere.

Totally agree ^^^ I have never been able to get those plastic cans with the stupid tree hugger spouts to pour without leaking everywhere.

Metal jerry cans are the best and can be found at flea markets and garage sales.

There is a whole world of "water" can spouts out there that are unregulated, and come in kits with vents and everything.

I inherited a bunch of old gas cans from my grandpa....some of them had the EPA type crap spouts on them. I went ahead and put EZ pour spouts and vents on them all and it basically made them all useful again.
