When I worked for the city, they bought a couple of those metal epa cans , I thot they sucked big time, u couldn`t give me one !Plastic ones suck!
I keep my eyes peeled for old jerry cans at wrecking yards
Along with metal cans at yard sales
Or there are these , spendy but work great
I like the cans and the "No Spill Jill" video. That was worth clicking the Amazon link even if you don't need a gas can. Va, va, va, voom!Check out No-Spill brand cans. They work great and are made in the U.S. I got two of their extensions for filling the GTX, which I think work much more easily than a large funnel.
Back in 73-75 I worked in a Chevron Station along a major California Highway (101). Occasionally, the CHP would bring in a stranded (out of gas) motorist. Since they did not want to purchase a gas can for one time use, we would fill an empty Prestone anti-freeze jug with a gallon of gas, screw the top on snug, and the CHP would take them back to their car.
A few years back I ran out of gas one night on the highway and only had an anti-freeze jug (with water in it). I dumped out the water and walked to the nearest service station. I put the gas filler hose in the jug, but nothing came out. The service station employee refused to turn the pump on because I did not have an "approved" gasoline container. I think I raised hell (and told him the above CHP story) and finally I got the gas I needed in the anti-freeze container. I suspect the plastic is the same, just a different color. I have never seen gasoline melt those type of containers anyway. I would like to know if anyone else has had a different experience. I do see the logic in not transporting gasoline in glass containers.
I have a few of those too but fill up some older smaller plastic cans to make refueling small equipment easier. Don't think I have any plastic gas cans that are newer than 15 years......damn crap.....
