"Yeah, holds fuel well. Some of these cans come with a safety pin that holds the opener down but this version doesn't. As mentioned it's pretty heavy when full but if you find 20kg too heavy then only fill it half way. Has a nifty lil hole near the opening which I put a key ring through attached a bit of chain & attached that to the spout so I never have to worry where it is"
"This Jerry can is the standard pattern, I have used them before and this one is very well made and the lid fits well (not always the case). VERY well packaged, probably over the top. Well painted, clean inside. The three handles on the top are to secure it upright in a vehicle and work well. To pour properly you need the correct nozzle which clips on, but you only need to buy one of course. Keep it clean, don't drop it on the dusty floor!
In theory they are too large to buy petrol in (which should be red and properly labelled, max 10 litres) but in practice with a painted label on this Jerry can may be safer than multiple small cans.
I use these cans for diesel which is less flammable and does not build up vapour in the can like petrol. Using very different cans also means that I cannot make a mistake and put the wrong fuel into something.
Watch out - they are heavy when full.
As an ex manufacturer I would not like to make this for the price, which means that it is very good value!"
"Very hardwearing, and useful fuel container, I have two of these one for diesel and one for petrol, never had a problem with them, would highly recommend, as they are large, the are heavy when full, so not recommended if you have back problems!"
"I bought one of these to take advantage of a money off fuel coupon I had. I had intended to buy one this week too. However I was refused service as it was a 20lt. I was told I could have 20lts but it has to (by the new laws) be in 2 x 10lt metal cans and labled. If this is the case why are screwfix still selling 20lt cans"
"i recently purchased a JERRY CAN for use in conjunction with gardening tools & generator, i was using a plastic job previously, this is much easier to use, and the spout dont crossthread like the plastics as there are no threads to cross,,,
i'm seriously thinking of getting more (at least one)"
"This is the second one that I have bought, they are excellent value. My main reason for leaving this message is for the excellent delivery service that you provide. Ordered Monday delivered here in Greece on Friday. Thank you for such efficient service."
"Well constructed, feels like a quality product and has a proper seal when closed which does not leak or allow fumes to pass. All the welds are substantial and looks like it will take a great deal of punishment. Great value for money compared to other like products I have found. Does was it says it does being a can..."
"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!"
