The gasoline canister is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is a small, red gas container.

It can be combined with a Water Gun to create the Flamethrower.

In Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, the canister is found outside of the Brockett Gas Station. It is one of the five parts which Chuck must find to fix his motorbike in Case 0-4: Find Bike Parts. It can also be used as a weak weapon in both Dead Rising 2 and Case Zero. It explodes into flames when shot.
