  • 10L (2 1/2-gal.)

Military Jerry Can Fuel Steel Tank, 10L (2 1/2 Gallon) is rated 4.3673 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brand not specified. I bought 2 of these cans to use for fueling my brushcutter, because the red plastic containers have a stupid spring-loaded spout gadget that is completely impractical for fueling things like lawn mowers, etc. It seems sturdy and is a handy shape and size. If you are carrying it empty in the back of a vehicle, stow it in a positive fashion. It makes a heck of a racket if it's bouncing around.Be sure to bring a funnel with you when you take this can to the gas station. The spout opening has an anti-glug air tube in it. This prevents the nozzle of the gas pump from fitting far enough inside to prevent spillage and splashback. Without the funnel, you will have to fill the can in short spurts, squeezing and releasing the pump valve repeatedly. Even with this issue, I prefer this can to the red plastic container with it's stupid spout gadgetIf you buy this product, be sure to buy the 'military jerry can spout", which attaches to the fuel can using the same clamp that retains the can's cap. It has a rubber gasket for a tight seal and makes it much easier to pour fuel into a lawn mower or brush cutter fuel tank without spillage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money. After the can arrived I cleaned out the weird smelling residue in there and put fuel in it. 12 hours later the interior of the can had rusted all over. So the fuel is now ruined and the can has hit the trash. Don't waste your time or money on this product, it is inferior to similar US cans.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defectively designed The spout with rubber seal in place will not affix to the can. It won't latch. I bought 2, both same problem. I tested spout, no seal, with H2O and it leaks profusely. SG kindly accepted the return.Still searching for gas can without new safety spout.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor venting. When stored with gas in them, these cans do not vent, and the sides will either buckle or bulge. Seam on bottom does not allow the can to sit securely, even on a flat service. Spend the extra and get actual military surplus cans.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from served it's purpose This gas can was bought to carry non ethanol gas for a generator. I have just returned from a trip of over 4,700 miles with the can tied to the ladder on the back of a slide-in truck camper. The main body is in good shape, however there is rust on some welds on the handle and latch for the spout cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Can Looking for something smaller than the five gallon, but larger than a gallon. This five liter can fit the bill. I also got the locking nozzle for it. This can is not as cumbersome as the five gallon.
Date published: 2014-12-08
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy built to last The cans were about what I expected . Built tough and sturdy . A bit heavy ( wish I could have found same design in a heavy grade plastic to be lighter ) but looks like they will hold up to many years of brutal use for long cross country trips. camping, desert runs , river floats and just about anything I can through at them . Got the nozzles to but need a way to clip them to the cans when the are not attached to spouts .

Convenient transport of fuel or water made simple at a bargain price!

Time-tested hauler emulates the classics during WWII. Seems original metal Jerry Cans were created by the Germans to keep fuel portable so their blitzkreig-style war machine could keep moving forward. Fact: the name Jerry Can refers to its German origin, "Jerry" being wartime slang for Germans. Each new military-inspired Jerry Can holds 20 liters (5 1/4 U.S. gal.) of fuel. Just what you need to keep equipment running such as your ATV, pickup, swampbuggy, chainsaw, mower... you name it. We cut a deal on a limited supply so you can save at a price lower than the PX at a military base!

Makes hauling a large supply of fuel or water easy and reliable.

These rugged, all-metal "cans" are used as fuel containers (paint red for gas), green for diesel fuel. Or they can carry potable water (leave as is) for troop hydration.

  • Tough stamped steel construction holds up to abuse
  • 3 handles make it easy to carry / maneuver
  • Rubber gasket and locking pin keeps lid securely closed
  • Breather tube allows for easy pouring, less spills
  • 20 liters means large volume from a single unit
  • Proven performance, based on the classic U.S. Jerry Can copied from the Germans.
Go with the flow. Recruit your new Jerry Can today for rapid deployment!
