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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pappupager Decent quality large sized gas can
I recent moved, and my commute increased from a mere 3 miles bicycle ride to a 35 mile slog through traffic. With that, came much more frequent stops to the gas station, so I was looking for the largest gas can I can buy to increase the time between fill ups. This gas can is the largest that the CA state fire code would allow. I was concerned about how heavy the gas can is going to be for fill up purposes, but I could support the wait on my lower thighs, so that was a non issue.
I do not have too much trouble with the new type of spouts. However, I am skeptical of the quality of the spout itself. Let us hope it lasts for a while.

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.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheCEN 6 Gallon Gas Can
I like this can because it holds 6 gallons rather than 5. The size of the can is compact enough to fit in the trunk of my 2009 Honda Civic. With the can filled, and the spout mounted, ready to use, four of these cans will fit comfortably in the trunk.
The containers are made of a good quality material and the price cannot be beat anywhere.
Keep in mind that there will be a fair amount of weight to each can when they are fully filled. The spouts seal perfectly, and the cap mounts easily to the side of the spout when in use.
To dispense fuel, you tip the can and depress the spout inward to open the valve and allow the fuel to flow.

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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo Great gas can but spout is awful
Gas can itself is great hold 6 gallon and doesn't leak but the spout is hard to open to get the gas to come out. Most of the time I just use a funnel and take the spout completely off.
