Plastic or Metal Jerry Can, which should I choose?
Can I use Unleaded Fuel in Diesel Cans and vice versa?
The colour of Pro Quip Plastic and Metal Jerry Cans is for identification purposes only. There is no difference in the plastic used in the plastic versions, or the enamel used in the metal versions between colours.
Do 20L Pro Quip Plastic Fuel and Water Cans fit holders?
Yes, the upright design of both 15L and 20L Pro Quip Plastic Fuel and Water Cans are suitable for traditional jerry can holders that fit metal varieties. The Can Caddy Fuel Can Transport Tray and stabilisers can be used for Pro Quip 5 and 10L Plastic and Metal Jerry Cans.

My Pro Quip Plastic Fuel Can is leaking when being poured or stored, why?
The most common cause of a Pro Quip Plastic Fuel Can leaking when being stored or poured is because the seal is not seated in its correct position. The “C” Seal is used to allow components to be stored inside the can during transport and storage. This seal should always be positioned over the flange or shoulder of the pourer, allowing it to seal against the neck of the can and the cap (when pouring) or stopper (when storing). Check out our “How to” section in the Info Hub for the proper assembly of these parts.
How tight do I need to close the components on my fuel can?
Components should only be closed to finger tightness. This decreases the chance of compressing, pinching or tearing the seal underneath which can cause a leak.
