    I bought mine at Lowes, Red for gas or gas mix, yellow for diesel.

    I just marked the mix can "MIX". I believe if it's gas mix it's still supposed to be red.
    I keep my gas in a 5 gal and my mix in a 2.5 so I don't grab the wrong one.

    OH, let's see. Try Lowes, Menards, Home Depot, TrueValue, Farm and Fleet, Farm King, Sears, Your JD Dealer, Your Kubota Dealer, Your eXmark Dealer, Your Scag Dealer, Your Dixie Dealer, Your Bad Boy Dealer, Your Hustler Dealer, and any other mower Dealers. If you can not find a gas can at one of these places, I would try the internet. Type in "Gas Containers" Gas Can's" "Fuel Containers" "Fuel Can's" then click on "Search". If you have not luck there, you are @@@@ out of luck. :hammerhead: :hammerhead: :hammerhead:

    Check out the Blitz Fuel Station. I just bought 2 of the 15 gallon tanks and mounted them on my trailer...high and out of the way. I will try and get some pics if you are interested.
