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.

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.

5 Gal. Gas Can is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 226.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from To get a gas can that works properly... This is what $20 gets you in gas cans these days. If you want a gas can with a real spout that's not a plastic piece of junk then look up the Wavian steel jerry cans and get ready to shell out $80 for a 5 gal. can. Watch out for knockoffs that cost just as much but aren't decent quality. To make this one work properly, do the following before you fill it with gas: 1. Take the EPA spout that came with this gas can and throw it in the garbage. 2. Go on the internet and buy one of those "EZ Pour" spout kits which includes a replacement spout and a little vent cap. See the coy little instructions for workiing around states that won't let EZ Pour ship replacement gas can spouts - you'll have to buy one of their "water can" spouts (same material, still perfectly suitable for gas) and live with the different color (white vs. black). 3. Follow the instructions to install the vent cap which includes drilling a 31/64" hole in the top rear of the can. 31/64" is an odd size but you might be able to make it work with a 1/2" bit and some liquid gasket. Make sure there aren't any plastic shavings attached to the rim of the hole. Install vent cap. For anyone that didn't live in the age of vented gas cans, this vent needs to be "closed" for storage, "open" to pour. No more glug-glug-glugging! 4. Clean out all plastic shavings from the vent cap installation from the can. 5. Attach replacement spout. There you go. You can now pour gas like a human being, using skill and dexterity to pour fuel at the desired rate into your vessel of choice without relying on the proper operation of some plastic piece of junk that WILL fail and cause bigger environmental problems than it was designed to solve.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just awful is the best way to describe this. Incredibly difficult to dispense gas due to the "safe" feature which results in spilled gas. Gasket between spout and can is poor, which results in spilled gas. Speaking of the spout, mine broke and fell into the can. Luckily the can was nearly empty by that time. I left the can on the hitch rack of my SUV hoping that someone would steal it. Some poor soul did steal it. I was expecting the thief to bring it back after realizing I left it out there for a reason but it never returned to me. Somewhere out there he is cursing me for letting him steal it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely awful. I bought this and a 2 gallon gas can; this was the only style visible in the store. These are awful. That they have the gall to call it a leak-proof design is astounding. The "safety" mechanism makes filling a lawnmower an exercise in frustration- unless you want to completely invert the can to put sufficient pressure on the valve to open it, you have to compress the valve by hand, and you'll get gas all over your hands from the leaking collar. The lip on the nozzle makes the nozzle too large to reach the flap on the gas tank of one of my cars. The "cap" pictured over the end of the nozzle is hateful to get on and off. This is a horrible design and product, and if I can get Home Depot to refund my purchase, I will.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Safety Feature Makes Use Messy While the size of this gas can is great, nothing else on it is. The safety spout makes it next to impossible to pour without making a mess. Even pushing against the lip of my mower gas tank to fill it a mess is made. It is impossible to transfer to a secondary smaller gas can to mix with two stroke oil for the weed wacker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I can't believe I'm reviewing a gas tank. I wouldn't have, but the Home Depot email guilted me. To be fair, it's an incredibly well-built canister. I hope it's made in America but I don't really know. The nozzle fittings are strong and secure. The color truly indicates that it is for gas - not diesel and not kerosene. The one down side: it's waaaayyyyy too expensive. When 5-gallon buckets are selling for $2, why is this 10 times the price???
