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.

No, but have thought about it for a while now. I would stock up a LOT of those red gallon jugs to last me months if I know prices are going to steadily go up and up and up. But those red jugs are expensive and I don't have room to put my extra gasoline

Not in the trunk, but in the bed of a pick-up.

No, you would save maybe $3 bucks at most for a 5 gallon gas can. Unless you are continually commuting across states or putting a few gas cans in your trunk, I think it wouldn't be worth the trouble.

Today's generation worries too much...
Early pick-ups had the gas tank in the cab... behind the seat.
Motorcycles has the gas tank between your legs....
How about on your back....(At over 100 MPH)

"FEAR" the great motivator....
