I've been meaning to buy 6-8 Scepter 20 liter MFC gas cans for a long time and will be driving to Ontario in 10 days or so.

Any ideas where I could purchase these in the Toronto area?

It may be possible for me to order MFCs online and get them delivered in Canada, but I'd rather go retail if at all possible.

My purpose is simply to have 30+ gallons of gas available in case of ice storm/hurricane/etc. Not "bugging out" so travel isn't as important.

Canadian Tire sells these things for a LOT less than MFCs:

Would those be adequate for my purposes? At least they have normal caps and vents, unlike anything we can find here in the U.S. thanks to Kommiefornia and the EPA.

If you want the military grade (I.e. MFC) containers you will have to go to an authorized Sceptre military distributor. See the link below.

National 4WD Centers is located in Burlington, Ontario. Appears to be a suburb of Toronto. May be perfect!

Hobo - I've just completed a permanent "bug out" from Richmond, VA to rural Maine. There's no point in me preparing for a long-term breakdown due to medical issues, so I'm primarily planning for hunkering down in place. However, there could be a need to go into the wood temporarily so gas cans that can travel would be better. Don't have a 4-wheeler yet but will by this time next year.

I just remember how hard it was to get gas for 10 days or so when a hurricane hit Richmond in 2003. In this more rural setting, it could take even longer to get supplies going again.

Right now I'm thinking that 4 Scepter MFCs plus 6 of those $20 cans from Canadian Tire might be an affordable and reasonable solution. The MFCs are $70 Canadian - not cheap!
