Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by yardman do not buy
I purchased 2 of these cans recently. They are awkward to use, and the nozzle assembly comes apart easily. I would not give them to my enemies

A little high but a very good, hard to find can. Quick shipping to store. I am happy with the deal.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jerzee Reinventing the wheel...
It's a container that holds fuel, without leaking, and allows you to put the fuel into a fuel tank. Why they thought they had to reinvent the pour spout I don't know and they failed miserably at it as well. Operating this pouring mechanism is frought with failure modes. Once you finally get things put together to pour from the spout, you must rest a hook on the spout against an edge on the tank you are filling to actuate the release allowing fuel flow. This then it is supposed to pop back and stop fuel flow, when you lift the spout off the edge. Too many steps you say? ...too complicated you say? ....surely it won't work as described, you say? Well...yes, Yes and YES!!! It's hard to hold 6 gallons of fuel, in an awkward to hold container and gently push into the release mechanism to start the flow. Now make that edge of the fuel tank a filter funnel which I is very light weight and easily moved. If you slip during the initial hook up, the fuel flow locking ring snaps back and shuts off flow and requires.....you get the idea.
It's a good deal at $20 for a 6 gal fuel jug. Just use the fancy pour spout as a cap and move on.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rachit Collar does not seal tightly. Mold seams misaligned.
I had to grind away some of the lower flare of the black nozzle collar so that it could screw further down and make a complete seal. There is a jagged seam at the handle where the two sides were misaligned during fabrication. Product was okay after these two grinding operations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michiganfourwheeler Excellent product
Best gas can I have ever used. It is the perfect size holding 6 gallons. The spout makes the can perfect you can put exactly the amount of fuel in you want. Like say you want to fill up and not spill and with this can you can do that with out a funnel. It's the best can ever and is worth it. The spout is only plastic you have to be careful when pouring but I never have a problem with it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Don3181 Great gas tank for filling generators
I have a generator with a 7 gal gas tank and these 6 gal gas cans are perfect for filling it. I wait for the tank to be almost empty, and just dump the whole can in. No worries about overfilling or needing more gas to get the fill done.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JBM44 Emergency Gas Stores for Hurricanes and such
I recently purchased a generator for my home. And with our recent Hurricane activity here in the Northeast, I wanted to be prepared in case we were to lose power again. Last month Hurricane Joaquin was heading for our area. So I quickly ordered these gas cans. They seem sturdy and the price was MUCH better here on HD rather than Amazon. Also....HD had them at my house WAY earlier than they predicted at the time of the order. So...all in all I'm very pleased with this order. AND the hurricane turned out to sea, so all's well that ends well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by albert11910 Works, but remove interior parts
The spout on this item broke before the first usage. Just twisting the parts to see how it worked broke the assembly.
However, all is not lost. Use a screwdriver to hold the interior valve open, then use a very small blade screwdriver to
pry apart the two arms which pull on the interior valve, and separate the arms from the valve.
Then the interior spring can be removed, and the valve can also be removed as it just twists off the pivot pins.
Re-assemble the unit without removed parts.
Also be sure that the C-channel is installed over the flange. Most units are incorrectly installed.
See amazon.com reviews for B005IQ2SQA, B001QCWQUS.
Con: the remaining two pieces are a friction fit, but some super glue will solve that issue.
Pro: unknown as I have yet to use the gas can.
