What it offers: 5x gas can capacity.
A Jerry can can be a rare find when looting areas with fuel, or can be made in a workshop requiring an assortment of resources and supplies (2-3 minutes to create). Can then be filled from the base screen, from the supply locker, or from the backpack (allowing on-the-go).
Displays its current fill volume "Jerry Can (0-5)" Has an empty weight of a gas can + however many gas cans it is filled with, i.e. 3.5 lbs. + (1-5) x 3.5.
Jerry cans would be a great way of storing extra gas cans for longer journeys. As of right now and without buffs; fuel mileage is rather poor. Most players are accustomed to keeping at least 1 gas can in their vehicle or backpack at all times should they go for a longer drive. The Jerry can would allow you to drive all day long and never have to worry about getting back to an outpost, your homesite, or praying there's fuel somewhere nearby (and you get a can or rucksack). A full Jerry can would allow up to 5 fill-ups; more than enough for a long-day's haul.
