Default scepter cans - what does CA POL mean?

so...I got a couple used scepter cans from fleabay and unlike others I've seen, they have CA POL stamped on the side, not just FUEL 20L. Does anyone know if there's a difference or what that means?

Different spouts and fuel delivery for the new CA emissions. The old style let to many feums out. That is why about 2-3 years ago people were buying up all the cans they could find. Also why the old style commands a greater price than when they were new. There is more to it but I hate typing on my phone.

Could be CA stands for California. That is where the CARB compliance on a national level was inspired by.

I believe they were used by many military. Certainly by the US. I think Sceptor is made in Canada.

There is an extensive Sceptor thread in the FJC forum. We all went nuts over these just before they were banned.

The last place I washable to find them atlas DS tactical.

The CA has nothing to do with California or CARB. Military Scepter cans are not CARB compliant. The military does not bother with CARB anywhere.

Scepter is a Canadian company and CA probably just relates to that, since the country code for Canada is CA. Internationally IL is Israel, not Illinois, CO is Colombia, not Colorado, MO is Macau, not Missouri, etc. Just because 'CA' means California to the USPS doesn't mean that's what it means everywhere.

The POL is Petroleum, Oil & Lubricant. That's a standard military acronym, means anything related to fuel, grease, oil. For example, the guys who load fuel on planes are called POL Airmen.

You guys are correct, in re-reading it and taking my time I saw the errors of my way. I read way to fast and assumed that I read Cali standards. That is what happens when I assume.

I can't tell you what is stands for but I have some of both types of cans and other than the "labels" they are all the same.
