Mad Max 2 (1981)

Correction: They aren't empty, the just don't have very much gas in them. They don't trust Max so they give him just enough gas to get the rig back to them. If they'd given him full tanks he might try to simply take the rig and leave. Also, it would be nearly impossible for him across the desert carrying 2 full cans of gas.

Then why not just give Max one can? They were obviously empty.

Because they contained two different types of fuel: high-octane for the gyrocopter, and diesel for the rig.
