Diesel Fuel Can Color?

Does diesel fuel have a special color coded can? I'm wanting to carry some extra in our coach and don't need a ticket 'cause I'm not DOT compliant! I know gas is red and I think kerosene is blue? But I am cluless as to diesel's color. Thanks, Tim

both, that's where the convention falls apart.

scepter and blitz make blue for kerosene and water.

i think kerosene is blu-er.

...not really something i want to find out the hard way.

Re: Diesel Fuel Can Color?

water in normal quantities (less than 5 gallons) does not need to be in a DOT approved container for transport. i would stick to white or clear.

Re: Diesel Fuel Can Color?

I've got the blue containers for water but as others have said, you can carry water in anything even a large ziplock baggie. The Kerosene containers used to be a DARK Blue color and water containers used to be a Lighter Blue. But now a days nobody conforms to the different blue colors anymore so it's easy to confuse. I find it best to write WATER on my blue containers so there is no doubt by anyone.
