The DOT not only want to see different cans, but you MUST write on them gasoline or diesel or whatever

This is the way we do it for MANY years.

red 5 gallons...regular gas

yellow 5 gallons..diesel

red 2.5 gallons...mixture...we do a number of duct tape around it and take the trusty marker with mix instruction/ratio....spray paint

Not to mention all the gas cans have different places in the trailer...5 gallon gas in back on wall, mixture on shelf in front...diesel (if needed) goes in the back of the pickup...kinda hard to screw it up...six years and no problem...knock on wood
