    What is everyone using for trail gas/jerry cans since you can't buy the old style jerry cans anymore?

    I'm going to be doing some offroading this winter and would like to have easy access to an extra 10 or so gallons of fuel, stored in my bed.

    Things to consider are 1) compact storage/stackability, eg. square vs. round and 2) ease of pour & fill.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks Sport, those RotoPax cans look good. Does anyone have any experience with them?

    i have looked at the Rotopax for puting on the atv’s all i see is good stuff. they are a bit pricy. but they are the best out of that style. the other brands are really bad for leaking. Roto pax has a better little bigger rubber gasket and like 2 more threads on the cap than the other brands.

    Just got, and installed, some Rotopax in the bed of my Taco - along the rail system with the plate that it is intended for. These seem to be an aswer to my dreams!! Sorry for the crap quality (iPhone) pic but it seems my regular shots are too large to upload!!

    If you look hard enough, you can still get NATO cans.
