I saw them @ a local Pep Boys the other day. They were under $20 each. The Gas was Red and the Water was Blue. Plastic

those are the crap cans from pepboys, vato zone etc...the scepter fuel/water cans are the durable plastic 5 gal. cans that the military uses..also know as NATO cans. very durable and hard to find. not for resale in California due to the C.A.R.B standards and regulations unless you can find some predated 1998 or something like that. the fuel cans average 50-75 bucks on ebay if you can find em listed.

i'm looking for a few myself..so if anybody has a source, please post up haha..

Cheap Scepter cans are good quality.

I have bought the $20 scepter ones at Kragen/Orielly and they work perfectly. The jug cap has a real rubber O-ring, there made in Canada too. I recently went on a 300 mile backcountry excursion and I had no issues with leaking. And I wheeled the truck at crazy angles too. Trust me--the're good to go.

I would buy the scepter ones as fast as you can because, when they're gone you'll only find the crappy Blitz cans with those ridiculous emissions apparatus.

There is a place in El Cajon, CA called "G.I. Joe's Army Surplus" and I was there recently and I recall seeing lots of plastic 5 gal jugs, but I cant speak to their make/model.

In this photo the red one is the 5 gal Scepter jug. The black one was a 6.5 gal Blitz water jug painted black.

Exactly. Sounds as though a few of us are in search of the Scepter ones.

MonkeyProof, after reading your last post... I think the 15 or so cans I saw at G.I. Joes were water cans and not gas cans. They did look military issue though.

I used that 6.5 gallon Blitz water jug for gas after I painted it black. I was in a pinch and needed one quick... It did the job, but I have wanted to replace it for a while now, and that's when I found the Scepter jugs.

FWIW, the Kragen shops in San Diego all have different inventory so it pays to call around and ask before driving to each one. That is if your interested in non-mil Scepter jugs.

I can get them. I don't live too far from a source in Canada. I might be going to Whistler in Canada in January and pick them up. I have two fuel cans and one water can for myself. If anyone is interested I have a new Scepter 1/2" pour spout for sale.

Not exactly what you're looking for but have you considered Roto-Pax. They seem pretty pricey but I like the compact design of them.
I want to get a few smaller one for the bike.
