Both Type I and Type II gas cans are used to store flammable liquids in a safe manner that follows OSHA regulations; however, they have a few key differences. With Type I safety gas cans, you only have single opening to fill and dispense liquids. There is no integrated spout; you must use a funnel to prevent fuel spills. Type II gas cans have two different openings specifically for filling and dispensing.  Type II cans usually have flexible spout that make fuel dispensing easier and are less likely to result in spills.
