Earlier in the year one of the 5l plastic petrol cans I use developed a crack in the bottom seam. That gave me a reason to research petrol can ... yes, I'm a little dull.
Everything kept leading to metal "Jerry" cans being the best option. I've got a 20 litre Jerry can that I use to keep old engine oil in from servicing our cars. It's great but I curse every time I have to pour the contents out at the recycling centre. The integrated lid gets in the way and the pouring spouts I've had for it haven't been great.
I also only wanted it to be 5 litres, as I probably only use a maximum of 10 litres a year with the lawn mower and hedge trimmer etc.
I was drawn to this design of Jerry can because it had a screw cap - and then when I realised the cap was magnetic and designed to hold on to the side of the can when open I was sold. I've been testing one out of the summer and have been really impressed.
The screw cap seals well and is easy to open and close.
The magnet idea works and I've not lost the cap all summer.
The pouring spout screws on easily and has never leaked due to the rubber O ring seal.
It also features an air vent running through the spout which means it pours easily and in a very controlled manner. Great when filling the small petrol tank on a lawn mower.
Overall dimensions are; 32cm high, 10cm deep and 22cm wide.
The spout is 30 cm long and flexible in design.
Available in either Red or Olive - both have red tipped spouts.
