Small, Approved Gas Can for Long-Term Storage On Board Dinghy?

Trying out a small outboard with integral gas tank. Any sightings of a spill proof, small (1/2 gallon or so) approved gas can that we could keep long-term in the dinghy storage bag under the seat for emergency purposes? It would not remain upright so vents are an issue.

Whatever you find make sure to use the gas in it every time you put gas in the motor. Let it just sit for "emergencies" and the gas will most likely go bad over time. This can be true even with fuel stabilizers given enough time.

The smallest “approved” jerry can, I’ve seen, is the 5 litre (1.25 gal) from Scepter (# 07081)
Scepter - Gas Can - 1 1/4 Gal - 07081 - Home Depot Canada

Unfortunately, it’s Not available in the U.S.
Scepter Consumer - Regular Fuel Containers

But, might be available in US, as the Moeller #007081
