For combat units on the move, small canisters that can be carried and poured by hand and moved around a battle zone by front-line vehicles are a crucial link in the fuel and water supply network. Scepter has been building and perfecting commercial fuel cans for decades and has evolved that experience into a complete line of Military specification fuel canisters and accessories.
The Scepter Military Fuel Canister (MFC) was developed by Scepter to meet design and performance requirements set by the U.S. Army and Canadian Forces for leak-proof, rugged, safe, dependable and cost-effective plastic jerry canisters. Scepter has produced and delivered over one million MFCs.
Vehicle and other OEM defense contractors can design equipment with carrying fixtures and brackets that are uniformly designed because of the standardized dimensions of the fuel canisters (and the Scepter water canisters).
The MFC comes in two versions that will hold 20 litres (5 gal) and 10 litre (2.5 gal.). Variations are available for gasoline, diesel fuel and kerosene, and each is identifiable by uniquely coloured cap straps.
Similarly, Scepter has tailored inserts for various users allowing identification as to user and contents.
NATO Stock Numbers - or National Stock Numbers - have been given to many of the MFC variants.
