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!!

Longrangeautomotive.com. Is a company in Australia that makes one for the TJ, however, the cost is very high.. You could buy a Jerry can rack and two Jerry cans for less

I think he's talking about Jerry cans

They are called "Gerry Cans" because the first to use them in WW2 were the Germans. The Allies copied them - but they were never fuel cans, they were used to haul water. Fuel was hauled in fuel trucks.

The Blitz company made the WW2 water cans, and continued to make red civilian versions to carry gasoline until very recently when lawsuits over injuries caused by the government regulations over air quality caused the company to fold. The defective design originated in California in response to CARB regulations, but the Feds unwisely adopted the same standards for all states. 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.
