Have a question about Jerry Cans....

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

which sizes would one recommend? 25, 50, 100 gallon? I'm considering them because I read that they're good for stacking/storage/mobility vs. the regular gas cans.

I'm planning to use these for carrying around when using the chainsaw, carrying on the road in the truck for emergencies, etc.

Insights and non-sarcastic comments welcome.

100, even 50 gallons would be too heavy for portability, unless you're gonna keep it in the back of your truck and siphon it off. The 25 gallon ones stack nicely due to the cube shape and flatness, but that's still somewhat heavy IMO. I think they make 10 gallon ones, but I haven't seen any.

Check www.sportsmansguide.com They sell 5 gallon refurbished French military cans. Excellent and tough. Roughly 12 dollars/piece.

At slightly less than the 8 pounds per gallon of water, fuel is STILL too heavy in 25 gal quantities.

I'll have to look a little harder for the smaller ones. I've seen only the bigger ones locally. Looks like I'll have to check out that site...thanks :-)

Wow. Had an answer typed and then did the "Say what?"

Tim wants to know whether a 25, 50 or 100 gallon fuel tank (Jerry Can?) would work best for his chainsaw.

Doodum, doodum doodum.

Sorry if that was a stupid question. As you can see, I have much to learn common-sense wise about certain things.
