Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Doresoom Leaky but fixable
This can worked well the first time I used it, but started leaking after I filled it back up and tried to pout gas out of it again.
I figured out that the cause of the leaking is a gasket that easily slips out of place when the spout is unscrewed. To fix it, reference the pictures and video I uploaded.
As for the rest of the features, this gas can is hard to use because it has no rear handle. The pour spout is still a terrible design even if it is fixable. It's hard to hold the can and the spout at the same time. And if it does leak, you're forced to hold the spout while it leaks gas all over your hands. There's also no vent, so the gas pours very slowly.
The only redeeming factor is that it's by far the cheapest gas can of this size.

This has got to be the Dumbest design for a gas can I have ever seen. The spout broke the first time I tried to use it. The label states, “Smart-Fill Fuel Filling System.” If they think this is “Smart,” what would be a DUMB system.
Total waste of money. I would like to return it but it is full of gas. With a label that has “Briggs & Stratton” name, I thought I was buying a quality product.

Spout is poorly designed. Broke almost immediately.

Don't know how you mess up a gas can, but the nozzle didn't work once.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nicholas Scepter 5 Gallon Gas Can
This is a review for the Scepter 5 Gallon Gas Can with the bent spout. I'm not sure why the Briggs and Stratton can is pictured in this review. Nevertheless, I wish Scepter would include a straight spout with 5 gallon cans, and a bent spout on their smaller cans. I have no clue why they would include a bent spout on a can this large. I literally need to invert the can to get the gas out, the bent spout is not going to work well and they stopped selling the straight ones. I have two of these cans now to keep extra fuel on hand for my generator. Other than for not having 2 different spout designs, I don't have any issue with it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tbone Poor design
This is poorly designed product. Their is no integrated handle on back of can to allow for two hand usage when pouring fuel, making very difficult to handle. Likewise, unlike other designs with safety release near top handle, this release is on spout. May be ok for unmovable objects, but virtually impossible when attempting to pour into fixed tank on boat. I would not recommend this product to anyone, find a different manufacturer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JLEE I hate this thing
It's a gas can, but the nozzle on this thing is terrible. The locking mechanism on the nozzle is a horrible, gas only comes out if you push the nozzle slightly back into the gas can. It would be fine if you were only filling up cars or boats, but for my lawn mowers and pressure washers I have to push the nozzle in with one hand while holding the can with the other to get them gassed up. It's a real pain!

the nozzle is difficult at best, fell apart and I had to use a funnel to fill my edger with gas.
