The Filled Fuel Can is the product of filling an Empty Fuel Can in a Canning Machine using Biofuel Cells or Coalfuel Cells. You also can fill an Empty Fuel Can with a Fuel Bucket. 6 Coalfuel Cells are required to fill one Empty Fuel Can.
A filled fuel can is used inside a generator to generate EUs depending on what fuel cells the can was filled with.
Filled can with coalfuel cells or a Fuel Bucket : 76440 EU vs 6 coal burned in a generator at : 24000 EU
Filled can with biofuel cells : 26040 EU vs 24 saplings in a generator at : 06000 EU
Filled can with Buildcraft refined fuel : 80000 EU via Power Converters recipe (no direct comparison)

†Other Wood Items = Any block with its material set to "Wood" (includes blocks added by other mods if material defined properly). Includes all other items that can be burned in a regular Furnace.
‡Assuming the smelting of 2 items simultaneously, divide by 2 if you are only smelting one item. For values < 2 keep in mind that you will actually have 2 partially finished units.
††Lava buckets are worth 10% of their value (2000) inside Iron Furnaces and Generators.
