Camouflage gas tank cover
lost mine last year. Even looking online without muck luck. Anyone have suggestions on how to beat. Amp the 6 gallon red plastic tank? I won?t paint it, looking for some sort of cover for it.

I like an old burlap bag, if you can find one at the local feed store. The only problem is, they absorb and retain water and get a little heavy. They sure do a nice job of camo though. You can even add a little spray paint if you'd like.

Good morning, Mark~


How about an inexpensive duffle bag ? Would your tank fit in this?

Something as simple as an old camo t shirt will work. I prefer to make cordura nylon tank covers. I guess to make it right I should say I have wife sew me up a cover. I do make the pattern and cut out material ! Very simple to make and takes less than a yd. of cordura for a 6 gal. tank. Material can be found on ebay for as little as $6 a yd. Use to use an old burlap bag but got tired of it being wet and frozen when I needed it.

Ditch the gas can and buy a set of oars. Paint the oars any color you wish. Whistle
