Military Fuel Can (MFC) 5Gal/20L - Field Drab

Part Number 05482

Part #05482

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. Designed to and meets Mil-C-53109, which has evolved to CID A-A-59592A. 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).

"U.S. Government Property" embossed on side of can as per Mil-C-53109.

  • Air-vent tube in neck keeps pouring smooth 
  • Inside threads accept adapters for stoves and heaters
