You need a U.L. listed steel fuel caddy when you’re going to temporarily store fuel in your work environment. If you’re working on a vehicle fuel system, you need a product that’s been tested rigorously and will hold up in a shop setting. Otherwise, you’re dealing with a major fire hazard.
A U.L. listed fuel caddy’s features include flame arresters on the openings, grounding cables, non-sparking foot plates, and fill gauges. This type of fuel caddy will pass Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and fire marshal inspections.
