Mystery object, fuel can ?

Recommended Posts

Zoomed up the screen, but not clear. Is this a normal size 2 gallon can and does it have separate cap and chamber within? If so these were carried on cars in the pre-war times and were used for oil in one compartment and petrol in the other. Might be wrong but until picture is clearer, not sure.

Petroleum Spirit suggests British. Out of intrest what is the material used to make the can? I've seen somthing similar on an old quarry barge, used in a gravel pit. It was attached to the drive unit that looked like an Seagull outboard on stroids.
