Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great price, but proplems Bought 4 cans first time, for daughter 1, they looked very good, a little thinner metal then a real GI can, but better than a plastic fuel container. Then bought 2 more for Christmas for my 2nd daughter. Son in laws realy like them, but then first son in law informs me that one of the two cans he filled had a problem. He had used one can to fill his lawn tractor. He went down to his garage and the can now half full had some how suck in from the heat, humidity or cold? It was in about a inch each side (total 2 inchs ), this causing the paint to crack and peal off. I didn't want to bother sending it back, but I suggest that the cans should be keep full or empty with lid open.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Deal I got one about a year ago and was so happy with it I ordered three more. When full they do not spill and with the nozzle it's easy to fill tanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good inexpensive alternative to the original Jerry Cans have gotten so expensive so I was very glad to find these good cans on SG. Got one to try it out and so far so good. There are some short cuts compared to the originals but they will do what they are intended to do, store and transport gas. It's going in my CUCV immediately to replace a rusty original can that I'm tired of fooling with. Thank you SG for sourcing these affordable cans!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value Pretty decent fuel can for the price. Not super high quality but it definitely a more affordable option. Only real issue was it can be a little tricky to fill at a fuel pump.Works well with the fuel spout
