There are still plastic cans but metal versions are no longer manufactured or imported. If you run across some pre-ban fuel cans, BUY THEM.
Thank goodness for auto correct, I have and use 3 of those Gerry cans.

Extra Fuel Tank

I'd like to get some extra fuel tanks for my TJ. I can't seem to find any online, but I haven't done any real hard core searching. I was hoping you guys might be able to help me find some. I want a few that I could mount on the back of my Jeep in case I find myself stuck out in the woods. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!!
