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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zosu Not that difficult to figure out
This gas can has safety/spill prevention features on the spout. They are not difficult to figure out, and instructions are included on the side of the can.
The design of the spout allows for one to tilt the can into a pouring position without any gas coming out until you get the spout into position. That is a great feature, in my opinion.
I've filled and emptied this can about 4 times a day for the last week running generators during a power outage, and I have found it to be the first can I actually like using.
Don't be afraid, just take a minute to figure it out!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Larry Very Good Gas Can
My four 5 gallon Briggs&Stratton gas cans with nozzles purchased in May 2015 are great. They are well designed, easy to pour till emlpt y, easy to hold, , the bent nozzle is styrong, easy to use, and works well and drains fairly quickly. The can design allows for 99.9% total emptying withoujt having to adjust the can or invert it while pouring, unlike my Specter cans. The nozzle is much sturdier and less likely to fail compared tot he Specter nozzles. Good product. Can shape redusces the hazard of increasing pressure rupturing cans stored in groups in hot wee ther.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CG Don't buy. The spout does not pour.
This gas can is worthless. They have a complicated spout that is supposed to be better for the environment. However, it does not work. The only way to pour the gas is to remove the spout thereby making a mess that is definitely not good for the environment. This was a waste of money. Too bad I didn't keep the receipt because who needs to return a defective gas can until now.

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!
