Can you live with a colour other than yellow? These are the only portable containers I buy for water and fuel. They are much thicker than what you'll find at your local hardware store. Available in sand or drab only. The strap is yellow indicating diesel.

I wrestled with the same issue on my new C28. Yes, 2 gal isn't much but the 15 - 20 miles or so at idle might make the difference, especially with how far off both the fuel level indication and fuel flow indications are. you'd think for $200K you could get an accurate fuel flow and level indication...

Anyway, if the locker would hold a 5 gal can that's what I would have. But the 2 gal is what fits. So I wrapped a couple of layers of yellow duct tape around the 2 gal can and wrote "DIESEL" on it with permanent marker. Hopefully that's good enough to pass an inspection, hopefully I'll never have to find out.
