Wedco Cans are available with a Briggs and Stratton label ~$45US, marketed for lawn mowers and such.

They bulk up and suck in with pressure changes (really bad with gasoline). They can be damaged a lot easier. They are wider than the traditional metal ones and don't fit traditional holders well. And they are expensive....

Are you talking about the garbage plastic stuff? I was referring to the metal wedco cans with the nifty cam style latch that are a CARB no-go in CARB compliant areas...

What about these? $29 for one or $25 when you buy six. Didn't call to see if they have them in stock or not. Used to see these things around all the time. Could have sworn I saw them at Northern Tools brand new not too long ago. I remember thinking to myself that clasp is different than the Blitz cans I have. Never mind I just re-read Gustavo's post and he wanted yellow.

okay the screw on cap kind of sucks but you can't have everything I guess...
I have 5 Scepter MFC's all diesel and love them. I have had steel US and Nato Jerry cans and they all leaked when pouring. The Scepters cnever leak unless the gasket is shot. I prefer the plastic as it doesn't scratch and rust like the steel cans. Yeah they swell and contract more than steel cans but so what. I like anything that doesn't rust when used.

"will not ship to CA".... It's a gas can for pete's sake, not a .50 caliber.
