If you don't completely use the gas within 3 months, buy pure gas or avgas.

10L (2.6 g) NATO style jerrycan in a jerrycan holder bolted to my battery tray on the TT tongue. It provides fuel for my Yamaha 2000 generator and emergency fuel for the truck when towing.


I also use a 10L NATO style can. Bought a couple several years ago and can't find any now. 20L cans and good reproductions are available.

It's nice because the 10L can is about exactly a tank of gas for my generator.

mostly an old 2.5 gallon plastic can from before the EPA stuck their noses in the portable can design. The can most often goes in the front pass through storage in the trailer when on the road.

Those new cans are the worst. I have no idea on who designed them but I would love for them to come over and show me how to use one without it spilling gas or taking 10 minutes to fill up a lawn mower. With all the problems in the world, I guess this was our biggest that it needed to be redesigned.

People just love for the government to control everything, including things as simple as their gas cans. Here is the answer to get your gas cans back to normalcy: E Z Pour

Ah the gov bureaucracy that decided we needed to improve the gas spout. removed the spout and glued a piece of plastic in the cap part to seal, use a transmission funnel to add gas.

Some years ago I started using ethanol free gas in all my small engines. I stopped having carburetor problems! Use a Honda genny and when traveling do not bother looking for ethanol free gas, but use regular. Last tank is always ethanol free and run dry. Ethanol free will store for up to a year with no additives.
