This wiki has been updated 12 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Marine fuel tanks are subjected to an extreme environment on a daily basis, which is why you can't use just any old gas can. The housing, valves, and fittings must all be resilient and corrosion resistant, and both portable and permanently-mounted models must also be able to stand up to constant sun exposure without becoming brittle. All of the items on this list meet those demands. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best marine fuel tank on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 30, 2018:

First and foremost, marine fuel tanks must be able to stand up to the corrosive salt water environment where they will be used. For that reason, every item on our list is either constructed from plastic or rust-resistant aluminum to ensure they will last a long time for their intended use. After that we looked at the quality of the attached valves and fittings, and how well the gaskets seal the cap and fitting holes.

He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
