1.1 This specification establishes nationally recognized performance requirements for portable gasoline containers intended for reuse by the consumer. This specification also covers reusable containers for gas/oil mixtures commonly used for two-cycle engines and reusable dual-compartment containers for separate gas and oil storage. This specification does not cover single-trip prepackaged containers.
1.2 This specification is not a fire hazard standard, but a specification for portable gasoline containers for consumer use.
