Answer: 
My can initially leaked, I then realized that the lid was not tight enough. I had tightened it sufficiently enough, or so i thought. It only took 2-3 more clicks, which is about 1/32th of a turn and no more leaks.

Answer: 
I'm guessing by the bulk of the reviews that many owners are not taking the time to properly use the spout. The likely cause of their leaks is a small rubber gasket that can slip off while handling the spout components. As long as a guy pays attention and makes sure that gasket is in place, there should be no leaks.
If there is a leak with the gasket in place, you have a defective unit.

Answer: 
THE SPOUT HAS TO BE DEPRESSED AGAINST THE RIM OF THE TANK TO ALLOW THE FUEL TO FLOW. In so doing it is very difficult to allow only small amounts of fuel to leave the can. You can not regulate the fuel flow because the can must be elevated to depress and the the volume of the liquid and gravity take over as to speed of dispersal.

Although the Briggs & Stratton name is on the cans, The Plastics Group actually manufacturers these cans and uses our name for branding purposes. Please contact them for replacement parts for this gas can.

Answer: 
Mine leaked from where the nozzle connects to the tank and from the poorly designed nozzle. The safety feature to close the nozzle automatically when released leaked too. Find another mfg . The old ones with just a cap were much better, but I guess there are to many slow people out there and we need the automatic shutoff ones.

Yes, at least one cause of the pour spout leaking can be fixed. There is a rubber gasket that can be easily displaced when removing the spout to fill the gas can.
To check this, unscrew the "ratchet" base and remove the spout from the can. Check to make sure the rubber gasket is properly seated on the ridge of the pour spout. When placed against the can, the gasket should seal the spout and can Read More

Answer: 
I have not experienced any leaking, however, because of the locking catch notch, it could be preventing it from getting a proper seal. Remove it off of can, and re-seat on the threads for a better seal.

The buyers from home depot go to manufactures and tell them the need "X" product for "X" price. Manufactures then make poor product for H.D. Then us sucker Americans keep buying this garbage. There were more expensive gas cans YOU could have bought. We are all guilty of being as cheap as this gas can is.
