    I picked up 2 of these exact same cans on ebay for $85 bucks shipped to the house. The deals are out there. Search military gas cans.

    Default NATO jerry can

    If I visit the Peoples Republic of California from the Republic of Texas with my NATO gas cans what can I to expect?

    Will I stopped by every cop? What are the legal penalties?

    Certainly something to keep in mind if making a trip.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Mike, as far as anyone has said, the legal prohibition is against importing such cans for SALE. I have never seen any language that existing cans cannot be used. It's pretty much the same boat as when california outlawed certain of the dirtier types of small engines (boat motors, weed whackers, lawn mowers, etc.) - you can still use your old stuff, just that new stuff has to be "clean".

    Now, if you are "caught" putting fuel into a can labeled "NOT FOR FUEL USE", I suppose you could be cited for using an improper container, but I wonder who would be looking for such a label. If you're using a "legacy" fuel can that was "intended" for fuel, you should be fine.

    I think they view it as an excuse to pull you over to find other things or to check if you're drunk but not one they normally take the time to pull you over for if nothing else is wrong.

    Not sure what the penalty is, but it will probably be a fixit ticket if anything.

    i ordered that nozzle from them in addition to a few more swiss nato cans and the nozzle sucks, the company says is "surplus" and wont take it back, and wont answer my emails anymore.

    I would stay as far away from that company as you possibly can. I have a dozen nato cans and a few swiss cans and the nozzle wont fit on any of them. it wont cam down (leaks like crazy.. like half the can would pour outside the nozzle and onto the ground) leaks when I tie the cam down out of the vent tube when pouring.

    total ripoff. better off getting half a dozen crappy chinese ones for less money total that only leak a little.
