(TacticalNews.com) – Storing fuel for generators or a potential bug out can be difficult. First, gasoline goes bad quickly — it has a shelf life of anywhere from three months to a year, so it needs to be rotated out often. Additives can help to extend the life of stored gas; however, you still have to tackle how to store it.
The average gas can might be fine for lawnmowers, but for escaping a city falling to chaos, something more is required. Enter Scepter military-grade fuel containers.
In the following video, Canadian Prepper explains why the Scepter gas containers are a good choice for preppers:
Scepter gas cans are created for both the Canadian and United States militaries, which means they’re built tough. Some may argue that more traditional metal containers are a better choice than plastic; however, these are military-grade and far more durable than their metal counterparts. In addition, Scepter canisters won’t explode if they catch fire, like metal containers do.
In addition to standard gasoline cans, Scepter also carries options for diesel and water. According to Scepter’s website, these containers are virtually indestructible — and they’re certified by the United Nations (UN).
One drawback to Scepter cans is that the spout is not a part of the equipment, as is common with most standard civilian units. Additionally, the spouts are a bit pricey — roughly $80 for a 5-gallon canister.
When you or your family’s survival is at stake, you want to have the best, most reliable gear possible. In this case, you don’t want to be bugging out off-road to find your spare fuel has busted open and compromised your supplies.
