I dunno know the real name of these style gas containers but if you Google “Honda style” you’ll find them.

They have improved their quality over the years but still have mulligans.
They don’t travel well. Change of altitudes they implode and eventually split.

I like them over the big Bildoe donkey dick cans for fueling the generator and a few other fueling tasks and they fit nicely in the back of the truck.

I still use the big VPs but these especially in the 2.5 gal size are handy.

I picked up a 2 gallon VP style can, I think it would Work great to haul red handle non ethanol fuel home for the lawn mower ...

The 5 gal VP style cans are taller than the bed of the truck and I can’t close my deck
Lid.

I get them at the gas station every time I run out of gas. Got a nifty collection of 1-gallon and 2-gallon. They don't last long even just sitting in the garage.

Just add a spout and/or a vent to it. Most of the spouts come with a vent. You can also buy the can vents loose and add them to any can.

Pro Tip: The 2 caps that come with these may not have the right threads for your gas can. You may need to reuse the threaded cap that cam with your can, and drop the spout assembly into it.

Pro Tip number 2: The gas can vent caps work great on water jugs so you don't have to loosen lids.
