Grainger can be a bear to deal with since they require a company name on checkout.

Cleanliness of theory is no match for the mess of reality; I pass.

Hows the pouring mechanism with this? Is is the twist and pull back style?

Just registered on their site with a personal account. No cash payments so everything is paid online in advance. Definitely better than when I tried to buy something from them a few years back. It was like pulling teeth to get them to sell it to me.

Dont plan on long term storage for these, good just to have empty in a car. For long term fuel storage look at usgi/nato jerry cans from sportsmanguide or colemans mil surp

Does the steel can keep the gas fresh longer? I already use StaBil in the plastic cans.

This can looks exactly like one I got from Sears a while back. I'm sure that it's the same just rebranded.

To answer your question, the can itself is fine. The spout is terrible. Yes, turn and pull or push against something. Very difficult to operate even compared to other sucky spouts like it. It was a good thing when the mechanism broke leaving it a pour position. Works better now but still tends to "glug" a lot since there's no vent and not enough air in when pouring. "Self-venting" it's not really. I'd guess that's probably why they're clearing these out.

Yeah, walk-in they want business license, etc. Not for online sales though. Easy. No problem.

I've walked in and bought without a license, no problem in Houston. No questions asked.

you should still use fuel stabilizer to keep the gas fresh, but the usgi/nato ones are made to be in the desert conditions for long periods. they are quite a bit more exp as well BUT they hold more fuel 20L and last longer. colemans has coupon codes during holidays, would look out for a deal on them then. i have 4 nato fuel cans and a spout for them. 20L each, its heavy.

its mostly the ethanol that causes the issues with long term storage.
If you are going to store fuel for a while, ie longer than a year, i recommend you buy ethanol free.
There is a website that will tell you where you can get it.

I mean, we're talking about that can holding only 1 quart more, that's not a selling point when we're speaking a volume of 5 US gallons.
It doesn't matter what container it's stored in If it's airtight, it'll "age" no matter what. If it's E0 gasoline, 3-4 years is what you can expect. The more ethanol it's doped with though, the shorter the shelf life is and a stabilizer is the only thing that can help counteract the molecular breakdown.

Can looks decent. Perfect quantity for anything bigger than a push mower. Grainger can be hit and miss though. Typically a heavy miss on shipping costs unless you luck out or buy in bulk.
