Gas set up

How do you guys like to set up your gas cans. I'm looking to get 15gal set up but I wanted to see if any one used them and if they like them?

I use 3-5 gallon plastic cans for the wheeled equipment and 3-2 gallon plastic cans for the handheld stuff. I have them in the truck bed up against my tool box and held in on the back side with a load bar. I can strap them down through the handles to the front tie downs in the bed. They probably don't meet all OSHA/DOT codes but they work.
