    I bought from this outfit: https://www.roverparts.com/Parts/GJC20 and received Wavian cans. They are now supplying VALPRO cans. Latvian producer: http://www.valpro.lv/en/products/metal-cans/ Appears to be same quality but I don't own any VALPRO cans.

    From the Rover Parts website (I asked the question): "Valpro is the factory for Wavian they are still the same cans you got before"

    Be aware that the bottoms of those cans are thin and prone to rust through. I have several of them and having left two of them on the ground, they rusted through on a contact spot. Lost about a gallon of gasoline from one and a little less on the other.

    My suggestion would be to clean the bottoms of the cans and apply a thin layer of JB Weld as a friction buffer. The paint gets scratched off the cans and the steel rusts very quickly.
