Our Favorite Gas Can… the SureCan!

We love this brand. Not just because it’s exclusively made in the USA, but because it’s well designed, easy to use, and almost completely spill-proof. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the SureCan Type II Gas Can and explore what makes it a great choice for anyone who needs to transport gasoline. We think that you will agree, this gas can is superior to other cans on the market!

In this SureCan Gas Can review, we will discuss:

We’ve also got a video review of the SureCan at the bottom of this post, including a demo of how to use it.

The SureCan Gas Can Has A Unique Design

First, let’s talk about the design of the can. The SureCan Type 2 Five Gallon Gas Can has a unique spout that is located at the bottom of the can. This means that you don’t have to tilt the can to pour the gasoline, which makes it much easier to handle. The spout also has a flexible hose that can be rotated 180 degrees, allowing you to direct the flow of gasoline exactly where you need it. This is a great feature for anyone who has to fill up a small engine or a generator, as it helps to avoid spills and overflows.

Another great feature is its built-in vent. The vent allows air to flow into the can as you pour out the gasoline, which prevents any vacuum from forming inside. This not only makes it easier to pour the gasoline, but it also reduces the risk of spills and splashes.

Additionally, the can has a thumb trigger release that allows you to control the flow of gasoline with just one hand. This makes it easy to fill up your car or lawnmower without having to worry about holding the can steady with your other hand.

The SureCan is the only can designed this way!

The Can Specs

We love how lightweight this can is. The size and weight make it easy to transport and to use.

SureCan Gas Can Safety

Safety is also a top priority with SureCan. The can has been certified by the EPA and CARB, which means it meets strict standards for emissions and fuel efficiency. Additionally, the can has been designed to reduce the risk of static electricity buildup, which can be a major hazard when transporting gasoline. The can also has a child-proof cap that prevents young children from accidentally opening it.

SureCan Gas Can Flame Mitigation Device

Patent Pending Flame Mitigation Device (FMD)

New to SureCan, the cans are equiped with an FMD which reduces the possibility of a flash fire and or an explosion taking place during the dispensing or filling process. 

How does an FMD work?

This is a patent pending design, and it creates a path that is tortuous for a flame/spark to be able to propagate the fumes inside the fuel can. The FMD reduces the chance of the flame/spark igniting the fumes inside the can.

The can is sealed to keep fumes inside the can and not in the environment. 


One of the biggest advantages of the SureCan Type 2 Gas Can is its durability. The can is made with 6 individual layers of high-density polyethylene, which is a strong and lightweight material that can withstand extreme temperatures and rough handling. It even has a 16 foot drop rating.

The can is also designed to be stackable, which makes it easy to store multiple cans in a small space. The flexible hose and spout are also made from high-quality materials that are resistant to corrosion and wear.

SureCan has made their can to last under extreme elements as well. It has been tested up to 60 PSI for high heat and -40 degree below zero freeze.

Certification is a big deal when you are using gas cans on your job site. This can is certified by several important names including OSHA, MSHA and DOT.

Price for Value

Finally, let’s talk price. This specific 5-gallon can runs at $60 / can, which we feel is a steal when you look at the high-quality product you are getting that is designed to last. The can also has a number of features that make it easier and safer to transport gasoline, which can be invaluable if you’re using it on a regular basis. Additionally, the cost of the can is offset by the fact that it meets EPA and CARB standards, which can help you save money on fuel costs in the long run.

In summary… the SureCan Gas Can is better!

Overall, the SureCan Type II Gas Can is an excellent choice for anyone who needs to transport gasoline. Its unique spout and flexible hose make it easy to pour the gasoline exactly where you need it, while the built-in vent and thumb trigger release reduce the risk of spills and splashes. The can is also designed to be durable and stackable, which makes it a great choice for anyone who needs to store multiple cans in a small space. While the cost of the can may be higher than some other gas cans on the market, its high-quality construction and safety features make it well worth the investment.
