The Eagle Type I galvanized steel safety can is used to store, transport, and dispense flammable liquids safely and has a single spout for filling and pouring. The can is made of 24-gauge galvanized steel, which is resistant to rust, dents, and certain chemicals. Gauge is a measure of thickness (the lower the gauge, the thicker the material). The powder-coated finish resists scratches, chipping, fading, and other wear. A flame arrestor helps prevent liquids inside the can from igniting and keep flames from spreading. The spout cap self-closes to help prevent leaks or spills. The cap assembly opens automatically to vent internal vapors. A trilingual safety warning label alerts users to the can's contents. This safety can may be available in different colors (blue for kerosene, green for oil or other combustibles, red for gasoline, or yellow for diesel) to separate, store, and identify different liquids. This product is FM Approved as a safety can used for handling flammable liquids in quantities of 5 gallons or less. It complies with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Standard 1910.106 for the safe storage and handling of flammable liquids. It meets National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Code 30, which provides safeguards to reduce the hazards associated with the storage, handling, and use of flammable and combustible liquids. It is Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Listed and meets UL safety requirements.
Hazardous storage cans are used to safely store, transport, and dispense flammable or hazardous liquids. They are typically made of polyethylene, 24-gauge galvanized steel, or 24-gauge stainless steel. (Gauge is a measure of thickness; the lower the gauge, the thicker the material.) Hazardous storage cans come in a variety of styles, such as Type I cans, which have a single spout for filling and pouring, and Type II cans, which have a flexible metal hose for pouring and a second opening for filling. They are often color-coded for different liquids (for instance, red cans for gasoline, blue cans for kerosene, yellow cans for diesel fuel, or green cans for oil). Other common features include flame arrestors, which help prevent the liquid inside the can from igniting, and seam welds, which help prevent leaks. Certain hazardous storage cans are FM Approved, and many meet National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards for the storage and handling of flammable liquids. Hazardous storage cans are used in a variety of commercial and industrial environments and can also be suitable for home use.
Eagle Manufacturing Company manufactures industrial safety, haz-mat, and storage products that meet International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards for quality assurance. The company, founded in 1894, is headquartered in Wellsburg, VA.

The can is a pretty heavy gauge steel, galvanized and powder coated for a nice finish. The best part is the spout. There's a steel screen in the neck of this can that prevents a flame front from reaching the gas inside the can and causing an explosion. The lid springs closed very tightly, and has a rubber seal. This is especially important for fuels containing ethanol, which likes to absorb atmospheric moisture. I've never had one of these cans spill, and I've never had any gas stored in one contaminated. These are definitely your best option for storing gas or other flammable liquids.
In comparison to a plastic can, these are infinitely superior. I've had to throw out several gallons of gas stored in the newer plastic cans, all because the poorly designed 'environmentally friendly' spouts leak, and let a bunch of water, dirt, and even bugs in. That's the kind of thing you don't really notice until your lawn mower quits running and you have to dismantle the carburetor to clean out all the dead spiders. A good gas can like this pretty much pays for itself that way.
It doesn't come with a funnel. It should. Otherwise very happy.
This one holds up great. It can be a little awkward to poor while trying to keep the spout open.
