Without doing some extensive modifications to my beloved 1968 FJ40, I have decided that I will have to carry fuel on the roof racks. As such I am in search of good jerry cans that are of solid construction and won't leak. Does anyone know where to find some in Melbourne or elsewhere?

Not Aussie made one's??
All made in China or areas there abouts.

Look for ones made to Aus Standards.

These are Aussie made, and available just about anywhere & everywhere >>>

Proquip plastic jerry cans

AFAIK, there are no Aussie made steel jerries any more, by far the best of the currently available ones are those sold under the Proquip label & made in Latvia, but waaay overpriced IMO... (YMMV)

Also, there is >>

Willow

and

BMW Plastics

I have some of the latter (20 & 10L), and have had no problems with them leaking (as long as the cap is screwed on firmly;-))

These are also widely available (SuperCheap, etc)

I agree about the over pricing, I have got about 8 of the Ausssie Disposals 2 for $60.00 ex army jerry cans, they were all as new & have been excellent.

Hi
Try Super Cheap Auto they carry the willow plastic 10 & 20 litre units. Aussie Disposals have ex-NATO steel cans which are very cheap around $30 if I remember correctly.

I'm too keen carrying fuel on the roof rack, it's heavy and subject to a lot of sun.

Cheers
