I bought one of these Jerry cans a few months ago. I've had no issues with the can itself. The cap seals tightly (though it'd be better if the cap was metal not plastic) and doesn't leak. My only complaint is the spout. Because of the new regulations, the spouts for these cans have a "safety catch" on them so they won't pour unless you press the spout into the fuel filler on your vehicle. The first time I used it to put gas in my Jeep the spout got stuck in the filler neck and broke. I ended up throwing away the spout and buying a funnel big enough to pour into and long enough to fit into the filler of my Jeep.
Extra fuel can for 4x4 adventures where there are no gas stations! Well built and durable coatings inside and out. Only draw back is the plastic cap. A heavy metal cap would be better.
can i buy 4 spouts?

Can anyone confirm the dimensions listed? Just put on a Smittybilt Atlas rear bumper and there is no way this would fit in their rack. Someone answered that it will fit, the space for the cans is more like 6-1/2 x 12-1/2 x 18. Great bumper, the parts list has English dimensions, yet it came with all metric bolts! On a 2014 JK 2-door.
