  • Gas cans

    What are you guys using?

    Ive used more than one plastic POS that leaked all over. Considering a Wavian. I'd get the NATO version if I could find one (Aluminum instead of steel).

    Anyone have gas can thoughts to share?

    I keep my empty seafoam metal cans filled for emerg. when travelling. You need to fill them at home though as the neck is too narrow for the pump nozzle.

      I have an MSR liquid fuel bottle I use from time to time. I dont necessarily mean for on the road. Just a general gas can for the garage.

      MSR fuel bottles are well made. I feel comfortable carrying them.

    Have MikeyC send you a photo of what he uses. It is genius!

      Maybe MikeyC could share it here. I'd be interested as well for future.

    Nothing special. Just a 2.5 gal plastic can from an auto store.

      2 of them on long trips. Just tie them on top of my saddlebags.

      My Gypsy wife told me to just carry a 5' x 3/8" hose in the bags. It works great!

    This is how you carry fuel

    The MSR and Rotopax seem to be kind of the industry standard for carrying fuel on the bike. The latter is a little pricey but more capacity.

      He's not asking for cans to carry on the bike. He's asking for cans to have in the garage. See his second post.

        That's what I do too along with an empty seafoam bottle.

          Sorry i missed that. All my cans are plastic and 10+ years old. The "new fangled" ones take 3-4 hands to operate them. There are websites and YT videos dedicated to making them more user friendly.
