I don't know about in your area but in my neck of the woods the tractor supply/farm supply stores carry them. They are red but a rattle can or two and they can be any color you want. Also you don't have to pay shipping so they are cheaper overall

check local law before paint gas cans. some places say it has to be red to be on a street able rig.

Blitz builds cans (or imports them from China)...

Blitz USA: Fuel Containment and Accessories

You won't find a 'Black' gasoline approved container.
Federal DOT requires all Gasoline approved cans to be RED,
Diesel to be YELLOW,
Kerosene to be BLUE...

Just so you know, not even the military uses steel cans for fuel anymore.
The black heavy plastic cans work better, don't rust, rot, or crack like the metal ones do.
Military surplus will have BLACK gasoline approved fuel cans, but they will be PLASTIC, not metal,

And technically, it's illegal to transport anything other than RED gasoline container on highways...
Not like it's actually enforced, but that is the law.
-------------------

I have some OLD military 'Gerry' Cans, US made, but they are getting SCARCE, and unless I was doing a 'Period' Jeep theme, I believe I would use the newer, safer Plastic containers.
They are getting SCARCE and EXPENSIVE on E-bay, and virtually impossible to find in the military surplus stores anymore.

I used military gas cans from surplus, and painted them camo...
I've only had one person in the last 5 years or so say something about them not being 'Red' and it was a retired DOT cop.
He was just busting my chops at an off road run for something to do, it wasn't serious.

Some of the new style military 'Plastic' jugs are supposed to stop, or reduce leakage if they get struck by a bullet or punctured by something else (like backing into things, something I do all the time on trails!)

I don't know How it works, so I'm guess here, but that is what I'm reading from some of the military guys...
Maybe they have some of that 'Green Snot' stuff inside on the walls, or the plastic self heals to some extent...

You can if you rinse them out well before you ship.

I find it VERY hard to find the old steel military cans anymore,
Much heavier build than the 'Blitz' metal cans made today, and different size neck threads also so my military can accessories (funnel, nozzle, ect.) won't work with the 'Blitz' brand cans.

Last two I purchased on E-bay turned out to be leaking junk!
Really makes me mad I shelled out about $50 each (with shipping) for leaking junk, but you know the E-bay people, SWORE they cans were in top notch shape and say I switched them after I got them...
No refunds...

REALLY pisses me off when they do stuff like that!
I worked HARD for that money

The 'plastic' military cans are referred to as Scepter cans. Triple handles are fuel and single handle for water. These are getting hard to find as the US military I believe has been restricted from selling them to the public due to C.A.R.B. rules.
