Yes, there is such a thing as a macho-looking jerry can! And the one we are talking about today comes from the factory of Atlantic British Ltd which is actually a pioneer in Land Rover parts supply in North America. This 20-litre steel jerry can is a fluid container designed in the classic European military style.
Although it resembles the typical fuel canister, funnily enough, you can’t use it for storing fuel in America since federal laws forbid it. If you don’t live in the US, feel free to use it for storing petrol or any other fuel, for that matter. Apart from non-potable water and fuel, you can use it to store oil too. Smooth pouring is ensured by a wide channel breather while the Bayonet closure prevents any leaks regardless of the canister’s position. The can’s cap has a locking pin which means that it cannot be opened by accident.
This 20-litre metal jerry can is made from 0.9mm pickled sheet steel, it is lined to prevent rust from appearing, and complies with standards such as Australian standard AS2906, Swedish standard SP, German TUV/GS and UN’s Dangerous Goods Approval. The can’s spout an unleaded auto filler adapter and the flow rate is really fast. Again, don’t worry about the spout leaking, because that will not happen. The spout works well with petrol vehicles with included adapter as well as any diesel tanks too.
Made to the original military specification, this jerry can is 6.5 inches long, 13.5 inches wide and 18.5 inches high and it weighs 12 lbs. By the way, Atlantic British produces a wide range of jerry cans and there are several sizes, colours and materials to choose from.
