What is a Jerry Can?

Posted by Jerrycans 13/03/2015


Tried and tested in some of the harshest conditions ever faced, the Jerry Can is one of the world’s most timeless designs, offering extreme durability and longevity in a simple, compact construction. A true ‘classic’ in both function and form, our Jerry Cans are based on the original, iconic design and then improved with modern safety features and updated construction methods.

All our fuel cans have been built to the highest standards, complying with the latest regulations concerning transportation and storage of fuels.

Whether you’re looking for Jerry Cans as water storage or as fuel cans, we have a range of Jerry Cans to suit every need, plus sizes ranging from 5 litres up to 20 litres. Originally created to store and carry the most liquid in the least space, Jerry Cans are one of the most space efficient methods of storing water, petrol, diesel or any other liquid, and the triple handles on top are true to the originals, offering extreme flexibility for carrying alone or between two people, and they also make it much easier to pour from one of these fuel cans when it’s full. Take some time and click through our selection of Jerry Cans and we’re confident you’ll appreciate the superior quality – inside and out.

Our improvements include a larger breather-pipe to reduce the risk of splashing when pouring, giving you a smooth flow on even the fullest fuel cans. We’ve also radically improved the interior of our Jerry Cans, utilising a special internal lining that’s been formulated to deliver exceptional protection under the roughest handling. This increased adhesion means there’s no danger of the lining chipping or flaking off and contaminating the contents of our fuel cans.

With a Five Year Guarantee on all our Jerry Cans, we expect you to get many years of trusted use from them – but beware low-cost imitations, cheaply-made Jerry Cans can be more than a poor investment, they can be dangerous.

Get high-quality, well-made Jerry Cans from us and you’re assured solid construction using top-grade materials, plus every one of our fuel cans is tested before it leaves the factory.
