Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kraig Get a wonder pump too
I bought a Wonder Pump siphon from Home Depot ($9) and it eliminates the need for the spout. Once you eliminate the spout from the equation (which almost all of them eventually break or leak nowadays) then you can just get the cheapest can around and use it forever.

This is the safest fuel can you will ever own, because once fuel is added, it never comes back out. The spout is the problem here, it is the most complex non-functioning thing I have ever seen. Took me longer to assemble the mower purchased that same day than get fuel from the can. Ultimately, you will throw the spout away and use a funnel just like the old days.

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.

I agree with ENGINEERING GONE WILD's review. The spout is one big nightmare. As soon as I get the gas out of the can I am setting it on fire.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by thegabblin Worse quality and difficult to operate
The plastic material is so weak the when you go to tighten it is strips and loosen back up. It is also very difficult to twice the green lock and slide down to expel fuel. Last thing is that the upper nozzle sometimes pop's out into two pieces.

Yet another device with a poorly conceived safety plan. The "safety nozzle" came apart on the second use. You must turn a green colored ring and align slots in this ring with ridges on the black nozzle. This action allows the nozzle to depress into the can which in turn opens a butterfly valve allowing the fuel to flow out of the container. On the second use the connection between the butterfly valve and the mechanism that opens it became disconnected, and the nozzle actually fell on the ground, so that the butterfly valve will no longer open. I will return this piece of junk to Home Depot this afternoon and will return the second on when it breaks on its second use. My advise, to you, is to go to your local auto parts store and examine their fuel cans so as to be sure they do not have some ridiculous safety mechanism as his can has.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shockr Nozzle design is flawed
The nozzle broke after 3 times of use.
When you twist the green spring loaded cap to the "on" position, it wants to keep twisting back to "off". IF you can get it working, you'll then need to push down on the nozzle for the gas to flow through. Unfortunately, this is where the big problem is. Sometimes the nozzle gets caught in the car's gas fuel line. While I was trying to remove the nozzle, it got caught and the whole contraption fell apart.

Exactly as advertised, just what I needed. Inexpensive way to store 6 gallons of gasoline.
