Better gas cans

I read through the guide on storing gas but it didn’t recommend a specific type of can if you’re not going to store a large amount. I can get pretty cheap cans at the store but I know there are more heavy duty cans that are priced higher.

Are the more expensive ones worth it? Like the NATO cans for example.

      i watched a video that said the plastic cans are better than metal because they won’t explode (i cannot find it anymore unfortunately). i think that nearly anything would explode with gas in it but i could be wrong. also you wouldn’t have to worry about rusting.

      Like with any gear decision, you could end up spending too much money on something that does a great job for scenarios that don’t apply to how you plan to use the item.

      For example, watch this video


      And then think about how you plan to use your can. Yes you can spend $80 on a great can but honestly you could spend a lot less and get the similar performance. Though in this specific example, the nonworking spout is a no go. Just my two cents.
