Reviews
U.S. Military-style 20L (5 1/4-gal.) Jerry Can, Olive Drab is rated 4.4626 out of 5 by 214.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome prices, great can. I never had my hands on an original so can't compare them. They're heavy duty. Lid locks closed, no leaks. Only complaint is the filler neck. It's hit or miss as to a fuel nozzle will fit down inside. Only 2 of the 6 I own will allow the nozzle inside. The rest, it sit on the lip so it has to be held by hand through the filling process. Otherwise, they're great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from over all a good can I bought two cans and a spout for diesel for equipment. One complaint I have is the can needs a back side handle or more of a gripable area on bottom of can to grab when tilling and pouring a full can. There is just nothing to help hold the can in an inverted position. The spout is great and can empties quicker than any I've used. But the can filler hole won't accept the large nozzle diesel pumps one usually find with off road diesel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A two year update I have purchased 12 of these to store gasoline, diesel, and kerosene. They are Chinese made cans, but they are very good. They seal air-tight, they have not rusted, and they have been satisfactory. You can buy them here for 26.00 and get free shipping. There isn't a better deal out there. You can get better NATO cans, but they cost 50.00 delivered. the next best Jerry Can deal are real NATO cans here at SG, item # WX2-597892. These have a liner, and are heavier steel.I've had mine for two years and they get used weekly for fill ups on a boat, my cars, and a diesel tractor. No leaks and they are all still air tight. The paint scuffs easy, but can be touched up with a spray can. I store them off the floor on a wire rack so they don't rust on the concrete. I take care of my stuff (expensive or cheap) and I expect these Chinese cans to last for 20 years or more if stored properly. For the money they are great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jerry Cans Easy to fill, easy to empty. No twist this and push that to empty. No mess like new gas cans.
