Rated 2 out of 5Â 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.

I just bought a house and needed a gas can for my lawn mower. I thought the anti spill valve would be good as i have a tendency to spill gas occasionally. The nozzle is very annoying to use. I spilled more gas trying to figure out the nozzle then i would have with a regular non saftey flow nozzle. The can also has no side handle for tipping ease. If your looking for a gas can to fill your mower or other power tools stay the heck away from this one. The only saving grace to this story is i took a old standard valve from my two cycle can i wasnt using anymore and put it on in place of the "anti spill" valve. What a piece of junk. Last time i buy briggs and stratton

Rated 1 out of 5Â by JRTheHandyman DON"T BY THIS FAULTY PRODUCT!
This is the worst product I ever bought from Home Depot. The environmentally friendly pour spout is a complete failure. This gas can is nothing but frustration from poor design. The spout leaks gas everywhere and the gas pours very slowly because there is not return air value to let the gas flow. The safety latch is a nightmare. Try holding a 5 gallon gas can upside down with one hand while the other hand is attempting to hold open the safety mechanism while gas is slowly dripping out. I had this gas can for 1 year and then the safety mechanism broke. Save yourself money and do not buy this product!!!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by gfr5519 Very hard to use not worth the money!
The smart fill fuel system is very aggravating it has a is spring loaded fuel door that need to have tension on it to stay open, so if you do not hold the can just right is closes the fuel door and the fuel stops flowing. Plus there is no rear vent so the fuel flow is slow. This can had a tendency to leak not a desirable quality in a gas can. It is beyond me how someone could take a fairly simple design of a gas can and screw it up, but they managed. Do not buy this product look for something else.

I have used this 5 gallon gas can before. I like the way it is easy to put the gas in and
the easy way to handle it to put the gas into the tank. The only problem I have is it
develops legs and walks away and I have to buy another one. I haven't figured a
way to put a leash on it to keep it home.
