Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gil gas container defects
The container has too many safety devices, probably required by regulTions. There is a safety that is supposed to keep the pouring spout from coming off but it really kept it from being tight which meant the spout leaked. I had to break the safety off to allow the spout to tighten.
There is also a safety which requires the spout be in something before gas can come out, I was never able to get gas to pour until I got my pliers and broke the valve off in the inside of the spout. When I broke the valve of the spout assembly came all apart, but I was able to put it together and hope it stays together. I now use the cap to close the spout and it works fine. There should be a way to block open the valve when one needs to pour gas.

This is supposed to have an on-off valve in the spout but it does not work. The tab moves into the flow and no-flow positions but the gas won't flow through. The first time I use it I ended up throwing the spout aside and pouring gas directly out of the can into my mower. That was fun! If I had looked at this stupid design more closely I would never have bought it. Now I use the plain spout off an older can which happens to fit this one but the spout that came with this one is useless. Kind of defeats the intended purpose of containing gas leakage to have to move my older spout back and forth between cans. This is the only brand my Home Depot sells so I will look elsewhere and throw this one away when I can get a decent one.

Home Depot, do you like your customers? Then stop selling this gas can that does not pour gas.
Do you like pouring gasoline out of a container into your power tools? Yes you say? That's why you're buying a gas can? Then buy a different gas can. Not this one. At least not with this ANTI-POUR spout.
I bought a second one b/c I was sure what I had the first time was defective, and I then physically destroyed it trying to get it to work. NOPE, it is designed to fail.
This gas can is a failure.
Well technically the container does contain the gas, but the spout doesn't pour.
Did I mention that you should not buy this? Just Don't.
I can't even ...

The spout is flimsy and easily warped. The handle was not positioned correctly and makes it hard to support the can while filling a gas tank. The valve that initiates the flow is easily sprung back in the off position, which requires you to put the can back on the ground and reset it. The vent doesn't work well so the can collapses as the fuel flows out until it reaches a point where it won't collapse any further. At that point, it starts a cycle of repeatedly gasping for air and re-collapsing the tank. Don't let the brand name fool you. This product is no better than many other low cost products on the market. Right now, I am in search of a much more expensive steel or heavy plastic container that actually works like it supposed to.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by drdirt Worst design ever.
The release mechanism is very strong. I had to disassemble the spout for my application. It takes two hands to compress the spring, leaving one no way to hold on to a less than both feet on the ground position. Anyone dumb enough to need all of this protection should be restricted from using flammable fluids. I'm taking mine back (at least the pieces I still have), for a refund. My application requires me to stand on a piece of equipment, and extend the can toward the filler cap. Impossible with this design. One star rating is only because there was no zero choice.

The spout stared out being very difficult to pour gas from, and now I have to remove it from the can and pour it through a funnel.

Wish I read these reviews before I bought this. Brought it home and couldn't get the gas to pour either. Tried everything. Thought I was doing something wrong. Clearly I was not..

Don't waste your money.
Does anyone know if Home Deport will give you your money back even though it has been filled with gas?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Good luck figuring out how to open the pour nozzle
It's a gas can. It does what other gas cans do - it holds gas.
My chief complaint is the kludgey pour nozzle - it has some sort of anti-pour design that requires an advanced understanding of mechanical engineering to operate. They managed to take something as trivial as opening a nozzle to pour gas and turned it into a confusing and frustrating process.
