    Has anyone heard of or seen a fake pair of the tan SI gas cans with the American flags Icons? I just think this dude on craigs list is retarded because he said they are fake because one of the flags is backwards (which its supposed to be) just curious if anyone has seen or head of them because i might pick these up lol they are hella cheap

    Gascans are faked pretty often. However, the SI Gascans have a backwards flag on (i think) the right earstem as that's how the flag flies when running into battle.

    They do make tan Si with the flag being a olive drab color rather than red white and blue. Mine are red white and blue with the olive drab color over the red white blue, take a closer look and you'll see what I mean,

    It's the "Tonal" flag, done in desert scheme. They make a set of Fuel Cells with this icon, but not in the desert frame color.

    The American Flag has a set of guidelines that dictate how it is shown. When displayed stationary the field of stars is in the position of honor, which is the upper left. When displayed on a moving object the position of honor is to the front, which is why soldiers wear a "reverse" flag on their right arm, and why the right stem of the Gascans and Fuel Cells are the same way.

    I haven't seen a faked Desert Gas Can yet, but that doesn't mean they aren't out there. Check it out, it has a matte colored frame and is most fakes are polished IIRC.

    No, I was just referring to the fact that the Fuel Cells have an option for a similar tonal logo in the Desert Gas Can, but in matte frames.

    No no I meant there isn't a "tan" version of fuel cell
