Made from high-grade coated steel, each can is tested to guarantee 100% leakproof construction. The tough powder-coat finish resists chemicals and stands up to demands of rigorous use. Each Justrite safety can is equipped with a stainless steel flame arrester which dissipates heat to stop flashback ignition. Cans up to 1 quart (1L) feature a trigger-release handle, while larger capacities have a swinging handle to greatly ease carrying of heavier loads.

Use a Type I safety can funnel to pour into smaller openings. This optional polypropylene funnel attaches to the spout neck of Type I Safety cans that are sized 1-gallon (4L) and larger. The two-position funnel folds down for when you fill or store the can, and stays up for when you pour. Large rounded bowl provides protection from splashing and spillage. Durable construction holds up to heavy use.

Gas Cans – Knowing “What to Use”

With so many different types of fuel containers available in the marketplace, it could be confusing as to what type of container is appropriate for storing gasoline or other flammable liquids. As a quick general overview, all of the containers below can be used as fuel containers — but it depends on who is using it (the individual user and their environment) and their application (storing and transferring liquid versus transporting it) — that determines “what gas can to use when.”

Standard Plastic Gas Cans

These are specifically intended for consumer use around the home and sell in the retail range of $10 – $50. They are widely available from hardware stores, home centers and big-box chain retailers.

Metal and Polyethylene Safety Cans

These are “Safety Cans” which are FM approved and/or UL Listed, and are required by OSHA when used by any business or commercial enterprise. Key required safety features include flame arresters, self-closing lids, pressure relief, and 100% leak testing. They generally range in purchase price from $50 to $150 and are available through industrial and safety supply distributors.

DOT Approved Safety Cans

These are FM and DOT/UN approved safety cans, and are required for use in any commercial vehicle by the Department of Transportation and OSHA when transporting flammable or combustible liquids on public roads and highways (with some minor exceptions, such as if transporting less than 1/3 of a gallon). Key required safety features, over and above “Safety Cans”, include rugged handle drop protection and a lid locking device for transport. DOT approved safety cans generally range in purchase price from $150 to $300 and are available through industrial and safety supply distributors.

  4. My own

    Just what I wantedThis is a real gas can. I have the plastic ones with the special spouts that don’t work or require two hands just to pour from them. The plastic ones dry crack in the summer heat, they tip over easy, especially when being transported for a fill up. You have to fight with the plastic spouts to get them on and off. This can can’t be beat, it won’t tip over, seals tightly and is super easy to open and close. I use a fuel transfer pump to gas up my equipment and the lid on this one holds the transfer pump shaft for me so I only need one hand to fuel equipment. I will be replacing all the over priced plastic junk with these.

    Lid will definitely leak if tank leans / falls over.The description says, leaking proof lid, controls vapor and spills. That is a blatant lie. The lid goes over the nozzle, it doesn’t screw on, if the tank leans / falls over it will 100% leak and gasoline WILL spill out , that is a fact. The other thing is under the lid is a gasket made of corck, corck will disintegrate after a while and fall into the tank. Why couldn’t you use a rubber gasket. I must say though it is still better built than the other brand. More heavy duty.

  6. bike4life

    SolidThis is the closest I could find to a good old fashioned, dangerous (in somebody’s opinion) gas can. Mine arrived with no dings and dents and it doesn’t leak. The spring in the handle is pretty stiff.I sure do miss the old time gas cans. Luckily I still have a couple and I hope they’ll last the rest of my life. The new safety type cans are crap. Obviously somebody at EPA or OSHA or whatever ran out of things to do so they invented the new safety cans. Aren’t we lucky!

  7. Old Dog

    NO SPILLS!I live in Colorado and camp with my family in the mountains (often at 10,000+ ft). Before purchasing three of these containers to transport gas I was use to the smell of gas and spilled fuel once we reached our campsite. These tanks are great at containing the gas smell and spills. I can now transport fuel to refill my truck’s tank and our camp generator without having to air out my pickup bed (and attached camper shell) upon arrival.I have read some complaints about the difficulty of holding the spring loaded handle/spout open during the filling or pouring process. To that I say, “suck it up buttercup!” The tight seal that prevents spilling is necessary to contain the fuel and prevent fumes and spills. The small amount of energy needed to hold the handle/spout open is offset by the loss of fuel that the cheaper plastic containers constantly allow.FYI- the Justrite 7150300 model and 7150100 model are identical except for color.Buy these if you’re tired of leaking fuel. The SAFE and odor-free result is worth the additional cost! Enjoy!

  8. John

    The 2 gallon size is perfect for mixed gas or a small lawnmower.One guy said in a previous review , they all come dented or dinged. I have bought two Justrite cans recently and that was not the case. Perfect right of the box. They are so much better than plastic cans , metal cans last a lifetime and do not swell up and leak gas in this Florida heat. I don’t particularly care for the new Eagle cans only because they started putting nylon handles on them. Thanks Justrite for a well made USA product.

  9. D.K

    Strong canWe use these at work.The are undoubtedly robust, and last a long long time.My one critic, is your hand has no “fulcrum point” to grap, meaning, you pull back on the handle to open the can, but against what? There is no thumb tab, or bar to open the can against. You basically have to 2 hand the can, by lifting, grasping underneath the can, somewhere, then pulling the handle to open the lid to pour.I don’t know if that made sense or not, but you will understand when you use it the first time.It makes for some interesting moments when using a funnel.Plus, creepy crawlys like to live under things.*update* 2nd critic.Cans are still going strong (I bought 2), but they are both grossly pink now.Like, barbie would fill her pink corvette with these.Yeah these sit in my carport facing the sun a good bit.So does my lawnmower (red).I have some of my dad’s eagle cans from the 60s/70s.They are pretty rusty on the inside, so I just use them for wall ornaments.They are still plainly red, and were used on a farm.

    They all come dented and dinged!Can’t believe I’m about to review a gas jug but this thing does indeed deserve a review!I wanted a jug that would seal tight and not leak vapors either when sitting in the shed or in the car. Well, tonight I went to the gas station to fill it up and after doing so I set it on the passenger floor board and on the 10 min drive home with the AC on, not once did I ever smell any fumes! With the same run with the plastic jugs they just about gag me out even with the windows down. I am now happy that I can take the Civic to get gas rather than always having to take the truck!Oh, the ding of one star is for the fuel cap seal being made out of cork (wish it was FKM or EPDM but nope…it’s cork) and for the fact that nobody can seem to get one of these delivered without having dents in it! The box did not have any shipping damage but yet there were still dings which makes me thing the manufacturer throws them around before being placed in the box.

  11. Diabeetus

    Arrived totally perfect without damage and very solid.I have the flex filler version of this, but I just need another can for long storage of fuel. At $35, I don’t see how you can justify *not* getting one of these. Robust, should last a lifetime, and solid. I would get ethanol free gas for it and stay away from the tank-destroying ethanol if you want this to hold up. There’s one handle on it, and the lifting doesn’t interfere with the opening. You would literally have to make a point to open it while lifting.Mine arrived direct from the vendor and was in perfect shape. Not a ding, dent, or scratch on it.Seals quite tightly. Holds 5.1 gallons up to the bottom of the spark arrester neck. If I fill it in warm weather and open it in cold weather, you get this “Pshhhh” sound like opening a coffee tin, so I know it’s airtight.Keep it topped up to reduce headspace (reduces oxygen degradation of fuel)Use a proper fuel stabilizer.Fill with ethanol-free gasoline.Write the fill date on the can and rotate every 12 months.That’s what I do for my small generator.
