What color should I paint my Jerry can?
 
So I have two Jerry cans on the back of my Jeep. One I use for fuel, the other for water. Both are labeles with stenicls, "GAS" and H2O". I've been thinking of painting the water can to be "NATO compliant", which would be either light blue, tan or black. Let me get your opinion, what color should I paint it? Read: what color would look best on my Jeep? Or should I just leave it red with the "H2O" stencil on the side?
Keep in mind, the Jeep is light khaki in color. Thanks!
Here's a couple pics:

Gas can should be red,, H2O,, NATO compliant always looks cool.. No need for labels..

OD green for gas and beige for H2O- unless you plan to run tours for NATO.:thumb:

That's new to me,, DOT compliance dictates red for gas.. Yellow for diesel,,

Go with blue for water and red for gas.

i thought blue was for kerosene and white was for water

What's new to you? The first half of this sentence prior to the hyphen is a personal choice of color; followed by the word 'unless', inferring that my choice has nothing to do with any 'complaince.' I'll try to keep it more elementary next time.
