Jerry cans 10 liter on sale

Just get today the catalog in the mail of Roverparts.com and the 10 L. jerry can is back for sale in the US (and on sale). I bought mines 5 years ago, and If I remember correctly, I got two of the last ones available in the US because of the new law that "prohibited the use of this container for the storage of fuel" Well the law is still in effect , but the jerry can are back on the market in the US.

They do not sale the holder!!!, so if someone is better than me with Google, please post the link.


I'm very please with the 2 jerry cans, they do not leak or rust after 5 years, and I have also the also the spout, very handy. I guess I will buy 2 other one for my new rig, but I need the holder!

I'm pretty good at searching for stuff, and I couldn't find anything stateside for the 10L can. Lots of options for the 20L, but not for the little guy.

But I did find a place in the U.K. that will ship to the U.S.--

They also have the 10L in stainless steel if you want some bling!

10 litre can

F2 Motorcycles in the UK. F2 are the UK Ural importers. They have 10 litre cans in silver or black, complete with holder. Lots of other good stuff on their site as well.

The 10 liter holders are out there. I've found most half decent trailer parts suppliers have them over here.

Failing that , try these guys that are selling them on flea-bay.

Thanks for all your responses and links, but the shipping fees from overseas (England, Germany, Australia) would be outrageous compared to the price of an holder.
So, I guess I have a solution for the carrier. The 20 L. jerry can has the same width and length as the 10 L., only the height is different. After checking the measurements of the 20 L. carrier, and mines with the 10 L. the small jerry will fit in the larger holder, only the height must be address. Not a big deal, cut and quick re-weld would be the easiest and cheaper way.

Just wanted to say: I'm adding a Jerry Can 10L (accidentally bought the 20L first) to my rig, and this is most likely the cheapest option for a holder: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The Smitty Holder will secure/lock either a 20L or 10L without having to cut or reweld anything. And it's not expensive at all! It's got some strong steel believe you me.

Nice find, thanks for sharing, this is the solution for the 10L can, on the picture, you can see how to position the strap on 2 the lower mount to accommodate the small 10L can. Perfect


Thanks again.

I have been looking for a couple of new carriers for the new replacement adventure tub on the GS and these look perfect. I ordered 2 yesterday so we shall see how they work out.

I cant for TVE Life of me Found a decent set of instructions on how to bold a 10L on. I don't think the tub wall is strong enough. So I'm considering a type of L bracket on a hitch that the body has but I still don't know. I like the way it looks when connected to the tub wall inside.

If the holder has the strength for a 20L can, I do not see why it would be not strong enough for a 10L.
Could you post pictures so you can explain us better what troubles you are facing. I do not have the holder yet, so I cannot comment but I do not understand how the 10L. cannot fit in it.

Elmer, who put together my rig, re-inforced the tub wall with extra fiberglass mat. You can see pics at post # 77 on his build thread here:

DRONE says he just used 1.5" body washers on the inside wall. See post #324 of his WUMPA thread.

Thanks and apologies for my jumbled words in my last post! I was writing from the iPhone!

So here's the issue: I have the 10L NATO can as well as the Smitty holder. But I fear that bolting the holder to the tub itself will compromise the integrity of the sheet metal. I'm not convinced that it can hold that much weight.

I can see here that's exactly what this guy did:


The only difference is that I'd be bolting the jerry can onto the inside where the stock can usually goes. But no one seems to have pictures of that specific mod. As for the fiberglass lining, I'm not really sure how that would help much.

Alright, just took pictures of my set up, Nato 10L can and Nato 10L holder
The tub is a Ural.
I have this set up for 4 years and nothing has moved, yet!

Outside, 4 attachments points, spacer + washer


Inside 2 metal brackets.
