    Well if its like a 5 gallon dirt bike one I either use the slack from the dirt bike strap(when the bike is in there) or take a tie strap and run it through the handle. I put one hook at each side of the rails.

    I have a 5-gallon can shaped like this:

    On an 07 access cab, it fits real nice between the part where the wheel well protrudes into the bed and the cab wall, with the tapered end of the can matching the taper of the wheel well. I took a photo, but it's midnight.

    I added a few low-test D-rings to strap it in separate from the bed rail tiedowns.

    Those are the exact gas cans I want/will be getting. Maybe I'll try that.
