I came across this oil can this morning in a car swap meet in belgium and bought this tiny oil can I never seen before, it's the smallest I have ever seen, it's an original ( not a toy ) oil can for upper cylinder lubricant, it was made in belgium in 1930's by "schuybroek hoboken anvers"

it's only 1,77 inches height

so what's your smallest oil can in your collection



and here it is next to an american quart can for size comparaison

Since you did not say automotive oil here is mine.

CAN is exactly 1-3/4" tall not counting the spout.

Nucky, a number of Oil Companies had small cans for tune up/ value/lifter lubrication and for radiator/water jacket lubrication. They came in a variety of shapes and sizes:

These two are small, from an Oil Company and are still filled with the original oil; so hopefully they fit the criteria..:

Did I mention they are/were small? Comparison to 12oz bottle and in comparison to U.S. 1Qt, 5Qt and Canadian Imperial Qt:
