    Fuel can source?

    Been slowly trying to increase the reserve. (Though wife mentioned she is up to a solar option last night). I am appalled at the cost of 5 gal cans. What does INGO say for most effective spending of dollars? Not cheapest, not best... most bang for dollar?

    Most of the “NATO”Jerrycans are JUNK. There are still good ones, but they come at a price, and it’s expensive. Rotomold or some such company is making carb compliant “NATO”ish cans, but they aren’t cheap either. My last 4 I bought from SOE gear and they were like $225, but we’re the real deal with protected welds and such. SOE hasn’t ran these in a bit though.

    Jegs or summit. 5 gal. poly jugs. These are the ones racers use. We did. And we still do. They stash away readily and the positive seal on the lid is serious. Fuel will keep for a long time especially if you StayBil it.
    Yes there are a few bucks but some of mine are from 1998 and still viable. You get what you pay for.

    These.

    Cans as in steel.....not a good idea for long term storage.

    I have four of the Jegs in my cart right now. Considering getting a fifth one to actually use to fill the mowers and such. I need to get off my backside and order them already.

    I opted for the fill neck kit. We had made our own but over the years it became a bit hard to use. I like the valve.
    If you are adept with tools you ban make your own with a trip to the plumbing section at the hardware store. The caps have a 3/4" FPT in them.

    Looked at one, but without a valve. I figured I would remove it for storage, but if I get one for the mowers and such maybe I should rethink it.

    Putting one together with parts I have is an option for sure.

    I see a hose bender. Might work to keep the floppy hose pointed in the right direction?

    That hose is fairly strong. Not floppy at all. The 5 can be a bear when full. Get a smaller jug and fill it from the 5. The valve helps adjust how much fuel is dispensed. Makes it controllable.

    It seems like a bit to get set up but once there it is Cadillac. Easy to haul and refill the empty's etc.
