These leak-proof steel fuel cans come directly from Wavian, the factory that has supplied many NATO countries for over 75 years, and are the highest quality jerry cans on the market today. Rigorously tested, they boast a number of features, including 0.9 mm steel walls, an interior rust-proof Rezol lining, an internal breather pipe for splash-proof pouring, a three handle configuration for easy carrying, a Leak-proof bayonet closure, and a locking pin for the cap. Wavian currently produces the only EPA, CARB, and DOT approved steel fuel cans that are 100% legal in all 50 US states. Includes spout and an adapter for vehicles with smaller filler receivers.
Note: the lining of the fuel can will react with water, these cans are made for fuel only.

Wavian Fuel Can FAQs
Why the safety spout?
The patented Wavian Safety Spout is not the same old EPA certified spout that we all love to hate. This is a new, high-flow, leak-proof spout that prevents spills and is a real pleasure to use. It is legal in the US and certified for use in all 50 states. It also comes with an adapter that allows for compatibility with all fuel intakes. We still sell flexible nozzles and long flexible nozzles for old times sake, but your Wavian Fuel Can will come with the safety spout. Our fuel cans and nozzles are EPA, CARB, and DOT compliant.
Can I put water in my Wavian Fuel Can?
No. Wavian Fuel Cans are lined with a special internal coating that is meant for contact with fuel and oil only. It is soluble in water and will not only contaminate the water, but it will deteriorate. Fear not, this won't happen with fuel and there are no issues of flaking or dissolving under normal conditions. We offer BPA-free, food-grade plastic water cans for potable water storage and transportation. Note: Fuel contaminated with small amounts of water won't be detrimental to the lining.
Why won't my lid close?
The lids on Wavian fuel cans are designed to stay upright while being poured. If you tilt the can forward while it is in its resting position, the lid will not fall down onto the top. In order to close the lid, you must gently lift the lid straight up—then it will easily close without resistance. Do not force the lid downward.
Where are Wavian Fuel Cans manufactured?
Wavian Fuel Cans are made in the very same factory that has been producing Steel Jerry Cans for NATO countries since WWI. Originally located in Germany, the cans' manufacturing facility had to move to Latvia during the second world war. They've been made there ever since. These are the original, genuine NATO Jerry Cans.
What do the colors mean?
The five different colors aren't all just about good looks. Fuel and oil cans are color coded to designate their contents. Read more to learn about each color in this blog.
Why is my fuel can red on the inside?
Don't worry! As mentioned above, the fuel cans are lined with a special anti-rust coating which is bright red in color. It will wipe off to the touch and it is water soluble but it will not come off in your fuel. It is important not to put water into your Wavian fuel can, because water will deteriorate that coating.
Do I need to vent my fuel can?
Wavian fuel cans are completely vapor-tight. That means that they are safe to store indoors, but it also means that they will build up pressure during elevation or temperature changes. It is important to occasionally vent your fuel cans while traveling up or down in elevation and when temperatures are rising or dropping.

Unless an expedited shipping method is requested, it's best to assume that from the time we receive your order during our office hours, Monday through Friday, and add it to our queue, it takes our team a few business days to start preparing your shipment. There is also the additional shipping time based on your location from our warehouse in Salt Lake City. These transit maps offer a helpful timeline for most orders:
Please note that we do not handle or ship orders over the weekend.
Shipping around the holidays can get a little crazy. We do our best to get your packages out within 48 hours, but once they leave our warehouse, it's in the hands of our carriers to handle the rest. Often times they experience delays and unforeseen weather. The best way to ensure your package arrives by a certain date is to expedite the shipping, not wait until the last minute, and even order a few extra days in advance.
These "last day to order" deadlines are your best bet. We promise to ship within the timelines given to us by our carriers, but these are only guidelines and cannot guarantee on-time delivery 100% (regardless if expedited is selected):
- Ground & Freight: December 13th
- 2nd Day Air: December 18th
- Next Day Air: December 19th
If your order did not arrive accurately, we will pay the return shipping charges and refund to you the amount of shipping you paid on that particular product. If you received what you ordered but are dissatisfied with it, you will be responsible to pay the return shipping charges and the initial shipping charge.
