2.5 Gallon Jerry can, Where to get one?

I know that I have seen them. I am looking to buy some 2.5 gallon Jerry cans. I want the real metal ones not plastic. I need to put them on my roof rack and the shorter2.5s will ride better. Any one have a source for them?

Boulder Army Store on Pearl St has the 5 Gal and some smaller ones - I think they may be smaller than 2.5 though.

I want to keep them standing up. It will keep them out of the wind and be more stable.

Here is where I got my Wedco can many years ago.
They are an exact replica of the German WWII ones.

The one on my truck is, it has a rubber gasket around the lid. It can be hard to open sometimes because it sealed and the pressure on the can.

Looks like I'm going to make a trip up to McGuckins. Thanks for the info. I knew that they were out there. It will carry extra gas for my small generator. It will run for 14 hours/gallon so I don't need 5 gallons. It will be a good "just in case" also.

You can often get around this by ordering them w/ a carb compliant nozzle (that's how I got my cans) if the store in question carries them. You need to search around a bit, but you can get them.

After I got my cans, I just ordered the non-compliant nozzle, because the carb compliant one sucked royally. (Sorry california, but if they don't work, they cause more harm than they help!)

Ric, yes leak proof.
There is a write-uip on some site about these too, on some off road trailer site.
Can not remember the site, but it might come uip with a Google search of Wedco.

Lemme see...
Found another source for them, these are suppose to be the best cans out there.
http://www.expeditionexchange.com/wedco/

Can not find the review, but it was 100% in favor of the metal ones.
The link may even be on my old 4Runner site in the mods section where the can is.

PS, found the link, the site is gone

It looks like Wedco is the one to buy. Their carrier makes the 20L sit on it's side. Maybe I should just go with the 20L mounted on its side. It would be about the same height as the 10L on it's base.

Member Adam F showed me a site long ago that archives sites that may no longer be around.

http://www.archive.org/index.php

Plugged in that review site, and got this.
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://.../neatstuff.htm

It found the review under Dec.
http://web.archive.org/web/200112231.../neatstuff.htm

Quote from the article, no leaks!!!
Quote:
In our testing, we found that these fuel cans just don't leak. We've laid them on their sides, flipped them upside down, and even filled them at sea level and them driven to the mountains without a single drop lost. In fact, we had one can actually belch as it relieved the pressure difference from the altitude gain on our mountain trip. After testing the Wedco Jerry cans from Backcountry USA, we've given away all our lod blitz-style U.S. fuel cans. From now on, just like with the British soldiers in the North Africa campaign, it's Jerry cans or no cans for us.

You are welcome.

Those are the exact same ones I posted that I have from Generator Joe's and that other site.

McGuckin's has EVERYTHING but their prices are usually a bit high. I think they are a lot cheaper at Boulder Army Store, but I forget what I paid for mine. Plus you get to laugh at all the hippies on Pearl St. LOL

I have a 20L I store on the side, and never had a problem with leaks in storage. Occassionally, I get leaks around the gasket when I'm pouring gas out of it.

The only problem I have with them is they pour SLLLLLOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWW since they don't have any venting.
