Jerry Can

Jerry Cans are used to fuel vehicles. They take up 3 inventory slots. You can fill them at fuel tanks scattered around Chernarus via the mouse wheel menu. All Empty Jerry Cans in the inventory are filled simultaneously, like water bottles. They are most commonly found in industrial buildings such as factories and gas stations.

Jerry Cans can be set on fire by damaging them, however, this only appears to work on naturally spawned Jerry Cans and not ones placed down by players.

One Jerry can equals 20 litres of fuel.

I wonder if they blow up if you shoot one full of gas. Someone please confirm this if it's true.

They are more likely to spawn in a Farm spawn (~6%) than an Industrial spawn (~4%).

They are mostly common in industrial buildings such as factories and gas stations. They are also known to have spawned in Deer stands.
