The Justrite galvanized steel Type I 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 galvanized steel, which is resistant to rust, dents, and certain chemicals. The red powder-coated finish resists scratches, chipping, fading, and other wear. A stainless steel flame arrester helps prevent liquids inside the can from igniting and keep flames from spreading. The spout measures 1.62 inches in diameter. A rounded handle facilitates carrying. 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 five 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 UL Listed and meets Underwriters Laboratories (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.
Justrite manufactures safety equipment to store, transfer, use, and dispose of hazardous materials. The company, founded in 1906, is headquartered in Des Plaines, IL.

Anyway I bought this one from Amazon and couldn't be happier with it--so happy I am going to replace my crummy red plastic gas cans with Justrite red, and get another yellow one so I have an extra one for when I have those big projects.
Apart from the obvious high quality of these, the construction and the paint, the primary plus that I see is in the spring-loaded handle/cap design, which assures there is NO SPILLAGE whatsoever when the lever is released and the cap is closed. No worries for transportation; no possible leakage into your trunk or truck bed, or back seat I suppose.
Yeah they're expensive by comparison to plastic, but for some things in life you've just gotta do it right and Justrite has the answer(s) for portable fuel containers.
The handle is hinged so that you can maintain the same grip to keep the lid open while you pour - important for filling a big tank, a tank that's high up, or for when the can is getting empty. It's also nice as you carry the can - it hangs naturally from your arm/hand. And, in case you're not used to using metal cans, it levels the can as you set it down, so it reduces the chance of denting the lower rim as you set it down on asphalt or concrete surfaces.
Like the others who have compared the Justrite cans to the Eagle cans, I sided with Justrite on the basis that the can just seemed like a better design. I purchased three cans in total - this one for my diesel tractor, and two smaller red ones with gooseneck spouts for my gas and gas-oil mix equipment. This one is Made in USA, and states so clearly on the box and can. The two gooseneck cans (Justrite 7225130 AccuFlow 2.5 Gallon, 11.75" OD x 12" H Galvanized Steel Type II Blue Safety Can With 1" Flexible Spout and ...Read more ›
Also, being made of metal, the gasoline is kept more pure for a much longer time than it does in plastic cans. They cost more, of course, but it is obvious the difference between the two types. I tend to use a lot of gasoline here on our property, which consists of 87 acres, although I maintain only a few of those acres as though they were lawns. It's just that the time inbetween cuttings can be a couple of weeks out in the fields, so the gas will sit for a while. I believe that it's always a good idea to use the additives to protect the gas, but to also use metal containers for even better, longer protection from volatility loss.
I got this one gallon model in green for my 2 cycle mix, so it won't be confused with other 1 gallon cans I have. Because I already have experience with the Justrite cans, I had no problem ordering another from that company. I didn't get the model with the funnel because I already have one on the larger can, and I can switch them whenever I want. Like I said, the construction is great, feeling like pure quality right from the package.
Some have mentioned that the funnel setup, which you can buy sperately or which comes with these cans by selection, will allow some gas drippage, which it will if your funnel is set at an angle tilted towards the can itself. I avoid this by keeping the funnel upright before tilting the can and prying open the cap. It's all a matter of pouring straight down into the funnel.Read more ›
This can has worked out great so far. That spring handle on top makes it easy to pick up and carry and when this is full it is quite heavy. The spring loaded spout cap makes a good seal that does not leak when closed. The spout is big enough to accept the diesel fuel dispenser at my local truck stop. It is solid and of course does not swell up when it gets hot or draw up when cold like the plastic ones.
My only complaint is that there is not a mechanism to get air back into the can when this is full, and when the fuel pours that glug, glug action causes splashing of the fuel. This may be one of those CA/EPA things. Make sure you get the funnel that attaches to this can or another with a wide mouth -or just pour real slow. That's not easy to do when you have 35 pounds of fuel in your hands and reaching up and over to the center of a tractor.
Also beware, if you are using the handle as a pivot point fuel will start to flow as soon as you tip the can.

Great can but wish I bought the can/spout combo for a few more bucks. Filling through funnel is cumbersome. Still high quality and great for storage. Easy to fill and carry.Published 1 month ago by Hunter
