Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Maddak Worst gas can I've ever owned
I've had this gas can for a couple of years and need to buy another gas can. I saw the poor rating on the one I already owned and couldn't help but look to see what others are saying. I have to say I agree with all of the one-star comments.
I've probably owned 10-12 gas cans of various sizes over the years and this one is definitely the worst. The "safety" mechanism to get gas to come out is difficult to use, requires you to sit and hold it in place if the gas can isn't up against something like a car, which is a pain, and it often leaks.
I'm DEFINITELY going to make sure whatever new can I buy is nothing like this one!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobSA 5 GAL. GAS CAN works - what more can you ask for!!
If one reads the instructions on the back of the can, it helps tremendously - Being an idiot, I said "I know how this works" and proceeded to spill gas around the area - looked at the directions on the can - figured out the pouring spout was locked - changed it and Viola - the can worked great
Seriously, the can is very good - construction, ease of carry - 40+ pounds when full - balanced for pour
This works - a little pricey, but I have the other type and this is easier - you won't go wrong with the can

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie 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.

Don't fill this can with more than 3 gallons of gas or your can't pour the gas smoothly into an ATV tank! I wish I could return for my money and use the old 2.5 gal cans I have for the lawn mower!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AllysAmmo 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.

It leaks while pouring. All over side of car and wheel. Plus my shoes, pants and shirt.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HouseOfDIY 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.
