Surely, you've gone and purchased a gas can by now. Your lack of replying
indicates you must be out snowblowing. With all that said, I've kept a
gallon of mix gas in the shop I work in for years in a gallon bottle
windshield washer comes in. We mix our own methanol blue water, and keep
jugs from the store bought kind.
It's not officially legal, but the best substitute I've found for
a gasoline can is a windshield washer fluid jug. Rinse it out
with water, and leave it over night propped upside down to get as
much water as possible out. Should only be a trace of humidity in
the jug in the AM.
Please remove the washer fluid label, and mark the jug with a
wide point permanant marker as to the contents.
Washer fluid jugs also will hold kerosene.

You can\'t shout down a troll.
We always used the red 'Era' brand laundry soap containers. Right shape,
right size, right color, nice handle, and the plastic (back then, at least)
seemed to hold up to gasoline and oil okay. If you don't use that brand,
just stop by local laundromat, and raid the trash can. I'd test one
overnight with a cup of gas, sitting in a steel bucket, just to make sure
the plastic is still gas-proof.
