Warnings and recommendations on fuel cans


Fuel can be UNDER PRESSURE and there may be a fuel SPILLAGE! At heightened fuel temperatures (above
50 °C) in a closed fuel can, as well as at high altitudes (300+ metres above sea level), pressure in the fuel
can may increase. Rapid opening of the fuel can in such conditions could cause a fuel spillage.
Open the fuel can slowly and carefully.

Do not fill the fuel can more than its nominal capacity.

Do not store the fuel can in heat or in direct sunlight. Do not store the fuel can in wet places or in the

Fuel and its vapours are highly flammable – do not smoke or use an open flame when using a fuel can.

Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when filling units, engines, etc. Do not fill hot and/or
running units!

Keep the fuel can out of the reach of children and in a well-ventilated area.


The fuel cans are painted with a special powder paint with high chemical resistance. CAUTION! If the fuel
can is stored outdoors, the paint (coating) may lose some of its original appearance (it can fade) within
3-9 months. Even if the coating loses part of its original appearance, its ability to protect the metal will
continue if the paint remains intact (if it is not mechanically damaged).

The fuel may contain foreign matter and debris. Always use filter strainers when refuelling. VALPRO
“Universal Spout” and “Flexi Spout” fuel spouts have built-in filter strainers that intercept foreign matter
and debris. We recommend only using fuel spouts made by SIA VALPRO
