not only narrow-minded and dull, but also just stupid.

Per Gunner Asch:

Correctamundo!

But, in the interest of full disclosure, the vehicle is too big
and the garage is too small..... So I never even thought about
it.

I would rate an automobile's fuel containment above any gas can -
if only because if a car's tank seems less likely to leak.

But now that you've mentioned it, even if my car fit I wouldn't
be too enthusiastic about having it sitting below our bedrooms
(split-level house).

A decent GI fuel can can only be detected if full or empty by picking it
up and weighing it. They dont leak, they dont smell and they dont
discharge vapors.

Which is why they filled entire liberty ships with filled fuel cans. On
arrival..they didnt need to be filled..they could be issued as is, right
out of the boat.

The NATO cans are decent enough as well

The Plastic Fuel Cans made by Spectre of Canada are very good as
well..but they are current US issue.  Spouts will not interchange, which
is why I recommended finding a type and sticking with it. GI (steel)
Nato, or current GI  MFC (plastic)

Then there are decent commercial cans built along the same lines...

Water cans are  also something that folks may consider...shrug

But hey...if you can simply get into ones vehicle and drive to the
corner store and pick up fuel/water and potato chips during an
emergency..no big deal.

Per Gunner Asch:

You have me convinced: steel over plastic.   Never even
considered what might happen if the container were to be dropped.

The current USGI plastic cans are far far different from the average red
plastic  gas can.  One..they are far thicker and are designed for rough
handling AND rough life spans.  They are ok..but they do puncture a bit
easier on hot days than do steel cans.  Id not be too concerned about
their slightly less attractive construction if I could only get plastic
GI cans or the red gas plastic gas cans from the hardware store.

Shrug.

And they fit the standard cage type GI type fuel can carriers so can be
secured on a vehicle, boat, trailer etc etc
