"Top quality fuel carrier. Robustly constructed and most importantly absolutely watertight when closed so no diesel leaking out into the boot of your car. Previously I used plastic cans but they were never entirely leakproof even with the lid screwed on so tight it hurt your hands opening them. This is 100% reliable. Screwfix price is the cheapest I have seen this anywhere, by a long way."
"Bought this jerry can to put some petrol in from my sons car, but unfortunately his tank has some kind of anti syphon device, so the can at the moment is unused. The construction is good and should last forever. The opening is very tight so had to use some extra leverage, but this shows that the seal on the cap is very good. I would recommend this product to anyone."
"Excellent quality product for the money,however any diligent forecourt will not allow you to fill up as you must only have a 10ltr jerry can marked up as "petroleum spirit highly flammable". Screwfix sell a 10ltr so if it's to be used for fuel save the hassle and get a 10ltr one instead. Just wasted a trip to the garage!"
"Great product, good quality for the money, no fuel spout though as you have to buy this separately. This is needed if you are fueling plant at a high level as spillage is probable. It could do with a locking pin which is missing."
"A good quality and sturdy container. Bought this to store some petrol I had to take out of a car I was scrapping. Well worth the initial outlay.... 20 litres of petrol in this, and another 10 litres in 2 x 5 litre containers. £40+ worth that the scrap yard didn't get their hands on.
As stated on another review, a clip to go through the hinged cap would be a added safety feature."
"The classic jerry can design is well thought out and very practical in use. This one is well built with an overall sturdy construction and a good secure seal. The tall, slim design makes good use of space and is easy to strap down.
On mine the catch on the spout was pretty stiff at first but has loosened somewhat with use.
The handles are very robust and make it surprisingly comfortable to carry, even when full."
"The product seems well built and has the full 20 litre capacity along with a locking mechanism for the cap; however it lacks the locking pin which would have made the can perfect. Come on screw fix, add the cap locking pin or stock it and offer it on purchase."
"The 20L Jerry Can is surprisingly easy to carry even when full, and does not leak even when on its side. However the lid is very difficult to open and close (probably why it doesn't leak). Also you will need a funnel when pouring out its contents it would be useful if it included an integrated nozzle or something. All in all a good buy."
"Beware, the reason that these cans are £10 cheaper than others, is because they're pretty crudely made - some shockingly bad welding around the seams. This is only cosmetic though if it doesn't bother you.
Worse though is that the caps don't seal, as I found to my cost when two cans full of diesel got knocked over in the back of my truck. They leaked all over the cargo area - even with the caps locked down as tight as they would go.
Definitely not 'proper' jerry cans. Satisfactory for static storage, but I wouldn't recommend for transporting fuel - which is what I bought them for ... :-("
"Bit disappointed with the jerry can. From the picture, looked like one I already have but looks can be deceiving. Managed to bend the file filler lid, between the hinge and the seal, first time I used it. Took me a while to get the lid to seal until I’d figured out what had happened. Took no effort to bend it straight. Also, not supplied with the locking pin which I thought was standard on fuel cans. Has the holes for one but none supplied or shown in the photo."
