"OUR JOURNEY FOR THE BEST JERRY CAN
If you’re like us, then you’ve probably owned or have done your fair share of searching for the right gas cans. After one of our loyal customers asked us if we know what the best jerry can is, or do we know of any at all that are good and would last. We decided to take this problem head on.
IS THERE SUCH A THING AS THE BEST JERRY CAN?
Well let’s dig into some history. As of 2009, all new portable fuel containers in the US must meet new Mobile Source Air Toxic regulations based on the California Air Resources Board’s(CARB) regulations, and they must meet the requirements of the Children’t Gasoline Burn Prevention Act. Of course these regulations seem like they aim to correct serious issues, but we feel it has created useless features that cause more spillage and harm to the environment.
WHAT WE LOOKED FOR
Well we decided to go with the best Jerry cans for spillage, quality and ease of use. We didn’t find many, but we feel the choices we selected are perfect for anyone looking for the best can available. After extensive research we found that the best cans are the NATO cans. These are high quality products built for rugged use.
Now if you do not select any of the items on our list, make sure you choose cans that are designed to NATO specs and NOT NATO style. We hope you enjoy the information provided.
