Justrite AccuFlow Type II Safety Fuel Can - 5-Gallon, Red, Model# 7250130
Awesome Gas Can
I know what you're thinking. It's a lot of money for a gas can. But I also know why you're looking into this particular can: the other cans you've purchased leak all over your car and spill gasoline while fueling. You will not have these issues with this can. Fueling is a breeze with no spills. No more spills in your car. The powder coated finish will last forever. You could buy this can once for a higher price, or buy multiple plastic cans over the years and frustrate yourself. Treat yourself to something nice, man. Buy this can.
Also, I have the 2 gallon can. I give it the same review.

Worth the Money
This is the best can for the money....the plastic ones always had an issue of leaking and just trying to manuver when pouring or trying to hold open the plastic release and handle...this one lift grab the metal handle to open valve and it pours smoothly....definitely a good buy....online right now...and ordering my second one....

Worth the Price
I think it was about 5 years ago when the plastic cans started changing. I’m talking about the plastic gas cans that you get any of the chain hardware stores. They all seem to be pretty much the same. Instead of just a straight pouring spout, they have this plastic vent thing that you have to hold open in order to get the gas to come out. It is messy, leaks, difficult to use and doesn’t work very well. On top of that, it breaks. I broke that third one in four years, and I decided that I have had enough. I found this can, what a world of difference. I can hold this can totally full upside down and it won’t leak a drop. Very easy to poor gas into the riding lawn mower and other machines that I have. I’m considering buying a one gallon version for my 2 stroke gas. If I had any complaints it would be that the can is round and it is expensive. Other than that, it is one high quality item.

Justrite Safety Fuel Can - 5 Gallon #7250130
I've been looking for a well designed and constructed metal fuel can for use with outdoor equipment as I just didn't trust the plastic containers.
I first found a metal fuel can at a local store which was okay but didn't have a built-in pour funnel. In searching further I found the Justrite safety can and ordered one. I liked it enough to purchase a second. It's well designed and constructed, easy to fill and, with the attached pour spout, was just what I was looking for.
The only reason I didn't rate it as 5 Stars is for two aspects: First, it does pour a bit more slowly than would be ideal but that might be a safety factor in the design. Secondly, since a five gallon can is heavy when full, it would be an advantage to have a small handle on the bottom of the can to use as a hold when pouring. Other than those two aspects the can is the best I have found.

Metal gas can
Great product! Don't waste money on plastic gas cans,with this one I can pour by myself.It is almost impossible to pour from the plastic cans without a spill.

I was willing to pay a premium to get a safe gas can so I bought this one after reading the reviews. I assembled the spout and put the unit in my truck. When I got to the gas station, the spout had come completely apart. Evidently they wind the spout around a mandrel to build it. It unwound and was hanging loose. Nearly 90 bucks for something that didn't make it to the gas station the first time without breaking. Man, am I disappointed. I found other reviewers for other size Just Rite cans with the same experience. Don't buy this brand.

Safety and functional
This well engineered and made can provides easy, no spill fuel transfer. I was always worrying about those plastic cans swelling and contracting with temperature change. For the price of good meal I have no spill and safety for my family.

Purchased this to comply with issues i had with the fire marshall. I also wanted a can that wouldn't spill and would vent when needed. Works great for no spill, fell over in the truck and didn't leak a drop. also bought one in yellow for my diesel. works great to pour too. much easier than other can and no drip like the plastic one i had. make sure you get the smaller nozzle if you are using it for small motors. The larger nozzle just barly fits a lawnmower gas tank.
Handle can be a slight pain with longer pours like a tractor or something. all in all, an awesome can.

This can, can.
Decided to buy this after dealing with junk available at box-stores or home centers. All the flow-regulators being implemented now to reduce spills resulted in me waiting 10 minutes to fill a 3 gallon tank on my lawn tractor - burping the dang thing about once a minute.
This is not an inexpensive can, but it's not cheaply built either. Put the nozzle on with the gasket and two bolts provided and it's ready for years of use.
