Ok, we all know that 60 series trucks have a bit of a black hole going on, with regards to what can be carried inside, especially with the rear seat up and in place....
A few years ago we had to move about a ton and a half of diesel, over a few trips of a number of miles, and I was amazed at how many Scepter MFC's fit in the old girl. Out of Covid boredom I took my empties and thought I'd see how many fit in the back.
Please excuse the couple of junk MWC's, just there for spacing, and the couple of empty spots, I wasn't going to lug full MFCs, and the spacing was evident.
As you can see, in the front row we can fit 6x 20 litre MFC's and 2x 10 litre MFC stubbies (one over each wheel well). The Center row fits 8x 20 litre MFC's and the back row 7x 20 litre MFC's, and 1x 10 litre MFC stubby, under the tailgate handle. And the tops are just below the side windows, so throw a blanket over and they're out of sight.
They are all nice and snug when the tailgate is closed, and the tailgate window closes easily with no glass contact.
So... A total of 21 full size 20 litre MFC's and three 10 litre MFC stubbies gives a total capacity of 450 litres! Not a bad fuel reserve....

As well, Scepter MFCs are TC and IACS approved for airline carrage of flammable fuels. Safest containers you can get.

Go to DS Tactical in New West, next time you're on the mainland, they've got them all, and they're good people.

I don't like carrying fuel in the cab because if you spill a little in the cab it stinks up the interior and makes me sick.
