What paint?

To paint the INSIDE of a gas can?
The purpose is to discourage rust and flaking of current paint. I figure I can get a quart, pour it in the can, slosh it all about, then drain.
Else hire a team of hamsters with itty-bitty brushes.
Prior to painting, I plan to place rocks and sand in the can and shake it like mad as a substitute for sanding.
====Because it's a military jerry can dated "Sep 1943" and has stenciled on it "III Army," which I assume was Patton's outfit. It will have a certain irony when used here with the Minutemen Project in South Texas.

Why does the INSIDE of a gas can need to be painted? I've had the same gas can for almost 30 years.

They make an epoxy,(I think), coating for the inside of motorcycle gas tanks that is supposed to work well. Probly work better than paint.
