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 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.

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.

The new "approvied" nozzle mechanism is, to put it mildly, a pain. The can itself is good quality but lifting 6 gallons to waist height to fill a generator, and trying to keep that nozzle engaged until you can prop the spout on the fill opening is no small task, and I am a pretty strong person! There must be a better way. Would not recommend unles you are a really strong person.

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.

The spout does not work at all, it jammed up on first use and then sprung free and will not lock back into place. Even when it was in the lock position it would leak gas. Now I have 6 gallons I cant use until I get a new can. Once I get the gas out, the can is going back. I will not buy this style again or recommend it.
