if you were to bring 4 or 5 - 5 gallon metal jerry cans, will they stop you at the entrance if you dont have 2 20 lb extinguishers, bonefide containment equipment, and electric pumps??

Store fuel in the shade of your truck, van/car. Lose the caps for expanded air/fumes.. No Smoking in area.. Fume can travel a long ways along the ground.. The fumes light easy and the flame will travel back to the fuel cans in a flash..
Thanks for wanting to protect the Playa and store you fuel safely...
The 2 extinguishers are to make sure you have a back up one should the first be used at some point during the event. if you need more than two because the fire can not be extinguished with two you need to get the ESD fire department to deal with it as it is too big for you to safely address.
Once a dry chem extinguisher is used even once the powder get caught in the valve and by the next day all of the charging gas is dissipated making it a paper weight.
Filling using a can is using gravity but it is not what we are referring to. We are referring to something like a 55gl drum on a stand with a shut off valve. if the valve is not closed or is sheared off all of the fuel leaks out.
I hope that clarifies things for you and please let me know if you have more questions.
If you bring 1 20lb and a backup smaller one it will work....
