    Well, this may seem like a dumb question to most of you guys, but i just want to be sure. Ok, well this winter i will have a snowblower and will be transporting it street to street with a truck. My question is, if I carry gas cans in the back of the truck, can it freeze or some how get water in it. Again this may seem like a dumd question and i would appreciate no bashing please. Thanks.:confused:

    I dont think that gas can freeze until about -95 degrees.... I only know this because my father drives a gas truck :D

    If the can seals tight it won't get water in it and it won't freeze.

    I don't think you have to worry about gas freezing , but getting water into the can could be easy.
    Just make sure that the can is closed and the cap tight.

    I've had mine get snow into it before for my blowers and it sucked...couldn't figure out how it got in there but from that point on I just dump alittle bit of gas line antifreeze when I fill up the jug and havn't had a problem since....
