I probably wouldn't since it might be dangerous, but I've thought about it.

The question could be taken a number of ways...

Would I carry 15 gallons of fuel in my trunk while driving to California to avoid spending an additional $7.50 for fuel ???

Well if I'm that tight on funds... I should consider staying home....

Would I carry fuel cans in my trunk...

Of course... the Gas station don't deliver !!!
5/10 gallons......Car "OK"
10 gallons----50 gallons use the truck.

driving your tractor or riding your lawnmower to the gas station seems "Goofy"

I guess however if you live in the city, next door to the gas station then the walk might do you good.

I will often get 30 gallons from a fuel program I belong to then fill the car tanks as they need it while the prices are higher.

The only time there is a gas can in my car is when I need to get more gas for the lawnmower/snow blower/weed eater etc.

Early pick-ups had the gas tank in the cab... behind the seat.
Motorcycles has the gas tank between your legs....

Too much to do about nothing....

No, carry a full gas can (for the lawnmower) is dangerous enough when traveling neighborhood roads back from the gas station. Blasting down the road @ 60+ mph with a full gas can in the vehicle seems foolish & risky.
