Default Stick out yer can

If you are referring to metal cans, yes they will work but with a couple of caveats. First, it would be wise to re-label it in a very obvious way. I've never run a lawn mower on glow fuel
Second, some metal cans have a coating/lining on the inside that may or may not break down and deteriorate in time. I was a big fan of metal awhile back. I seemed to get less condensation in my fuel when it was exposed to the sun during a flying session. Kinda got away from that practice because of the inner lining thing. Several manufacturers used to supply fuel in metal. Not sure if they still do or not, but that of course would be a different set of circumstances_bob

Powermaster uses the cans. Got a couple at WRAM.

You could also use the fuel jugs that racers use. They are made for it. Or, how about used fuel cans or bottles?

Yeah, I have a couple metal cans from powermaster and a couple of near empty plastic fuel jugs that I can use.

Thanks, guys.
