I've driven back and forth to Alaska a couple of times with a big red 110 gallon tank in the back of my truck they couldn't miss seeing and there's never been a question about it.

If Canada will let people cross the border with a trunk full of loaded 6 gallon gas cans, you won't have any trouble

Around Calgary area, before the oil market tanked, every other pickup on the road had a big fuel tank in the bed with a pump on it.
Simply not an issue carrying extra fuel.

I do remember 30 (?) years ago hearing that Canada wasn't trying to stop you from having your extra tank in the bed, but they wanted to tax the fuel. Their reasoning was you were driving on their roads but not paying any taxes for road maintenance.

I must say on my last trip south in my truck, which had a load, but no trailer, I made it from Anchorage to Core de Lane Idaho without buying any fuel. Made it in 64 hours.
