    A:  Get a funnel. "If only the nozzle was longer and articulated as the can was lifted in a filling operation ".

    A:  Hi marc - There are environmental regulations (EPA) that must be met on all fuel cans sold in the US, in addition gas cans must adhere to strict child resistant packaging laws and come equipped with a child-safety lock, all these features have been built into the SMARTCONTROL SPOUT. There is a funnel available directly from Scepter that can be used in conjunction with the SMARTCONTROL SPOUT that may help. Every automobile/equipment is different, so it is not a one size fits all situation. If you require the funnel or any additional assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to our customer care team at 1-855-857-3252.

      A:  Hi Benjamin - We apologize for your experience, This can has a flow rate of 3+ gallons per minute when actuated fully. Step 1; Vent the fuel can by slowly unscrewing the cap, allow all the pressure to escape. Once vented re-tighten cap. Step 2: Flip up dark lever on back of spout with your palm. Step 3: With the dark green lever still flipped up, push the entire light green pad forward. It will be stiff as that is part of the child resistant feature. Step 4: Tilt can and pour. If you are still having difficulty, please contact our customer care team at 1-855-857-3252 or email customerservice@scepter.com so we can resolve this for you. Thank you.

            A:  In order to replace it you need to carve up the ogininal spout and use the ring with a new spout and add a vent.

              Q:What do you recommend for Ethanol E-85
              by|Dec 2, 2021
              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  E-85 is a flammable liquid so I would suggest storage in a red can like regular gasoline except clearly labeled. Yellow cans for Diesel are considered non flammable and are not stored in red containers for that reason.

              by|Feb 1, 2022

                A:  Hi Joeyc - Scepter containers are designed to be used with the standard fuels that you would find at gas stations. E85 is a very aggressive fuel, long term testing is underway but we do not have results. For those reasons, we DO NOT recommend using our container for E85. Please contact our Customer Care Team for further assistance at 1-855-857-3252. Thank you

                  Dangerous for Truck Stop nozzles!
                  Will not let nozzles at truck stop breathe and will spray diesel in your eyes! Only use at car pumps! Manufacturer should know the size of all nozzles before producing!

                  Hi Trucker - We apologize for your experience. Customer satisfaction is very important to Scepter. If you would like to discuss your experience, please reach out to our Customer Service team at 1-800-387-6018 or customerservice@scepter.com so that we can resolve this for you. The “screen” you see in the neck of the fuel can is actually a safety device called a flame mitigation device (FMD). Its inclusion in fuel containers is part of a 2020 U.S. law to improve overall safety. It does not make it safe to mix Gas and Fire, which remains extremely dangerous, but helps to protect the consumer against situations of potential misuse. Do not ever remove or modify the FMD. We understand that filling the containers now requires the user to learn to rest the pump in the center of the FMD, on the steps, to fill at full speed. You can also choose simply to take your time filling the container. We have posted both fill and pour instructions online at https://www.scepter.com/safety/instructional-videos/ which should help. We are here to help! Scepter
                    The best gas can I've had. The color options are great for me since the gas for my power mower is different than the one for my 4 wheelers and my grand kids' go karts.
                    Perfect container for my needs

                    not worth wasting your gas or money.
                    I bought the first one the handle didn't want work. I returned it and got the 2nd one the handle works but it leaks when you poor the gas.
                    Response from ScepterCustomerServiceMay 25, 2022
                    Hi customer - We are sorry to hear you’ve had difficulty with the SmartControl Gas Can. To open or vent the fuel can, the green tab on the neck ring must be pressed down and the black cap slowly turned counter-clockwise. The green tab must be pushed hard enough to clear the teeth on the black cap, providing the necessary clearance to allow the turn. Once the fuel can is vented, retighten the black cap. TO POUR: There are two steps to using this spout. Step 1. UNLOCK: Using your palm, press and hold the small dark green lock tab up to unlock. Step 2: POUR: Place your fingers over the black grip and keeping the lock tab depressed and using your palm, squeeze to slide the large light green block forward to release the fuel. The large light green block will need to slide all the way forward to achieve maximum flow. There is stiffness expected when pressing the green neck ring tab as well as when sliding the large light green block forward as both are part of the child resistant features. For your convenience, the video "How To Operate Your Smart Control Fuel Container" can be found at the following link and should help: https://www.scepter.com/safety/instructional-videos/ . We conduct 100% leak testing of this product so if the cap is screwed down and tightened securely, this should not leak. Please contact our customer care team at 1-855-857-3252 or email customerservice@scepter.com so that we can resolve this for you. Scepter
                      Plan to spend another $10 for different spout
                      Saw off the nozzle, keep the original ring, get a traditional spout, and add a vent plug to the handle area. See my photos. More work than its worth, but I had no choice, I was in a bind when I originally bought the thing.
                      Response from ScepterCustomerServiceJan 17, 2022
                      Hi DifficultPhil – It is important to be aware that this can is not to be used with any spout other than the one it came with at the time of purchase as it will not seal correctly. Gasoline vapors can be explosive. Therefore, it’s imperative to ensure your fuel container is properly sealed. The FMD is an important safety device designed for your protection. It should never be removed from the container. We strongly advise against using this can with the modifications you’ve described. If you require additional information or we can assist in any other way, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer care team at 1-855- 857-3252. Scepter

                        Great safety features.
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After reading the instructions and watching a video on how to use it, my husband and I figure it out. Very heavy duty, durable and bright yellow.. The Scepter Smart Control has a squeeze controlled flow rate that helps filling stuff without spilling a drop. Love that you can fill the container without spills and that you can't overfill.

                          A new concept but a Great one!
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a new concept in gasoline/diesel containers. It’s not just a pour and go concept with gas splashing everywhere. Scepter has envisioned a safer and cleaner alternative with this new design. With the new design the gas only goes where you want it to and when you want it to go. This diesel container requires you to press firmly as you pour so that it flows easily into whatever you are fueling and stops perfectly the minute you stop pressing. The added plus is that it has a splash back design that keeps the gas/diesel from splashing out. This is a wonderful new innovative way to keep your hands clean and prevent spillage!

                            Easy pour design.
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The 5 gallon SmartControl container has a great design to it. With other cans, I struggle lining up to get the fuel out, but this container is so easy. It was a simple palm push and finger grab! I hope to find other SmartControl containers to replace my current ones.

                              So easy!
                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I never thought I would be so excited about a gas can. We have several different types of cans, and I manage to pour gas everywhere when I use them. This one however is the easiest can to use! You just have to push the handle and pour! I will never buy a different can again!

                                Awesome Features
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Scepter 5 gallon fuel container is very sturdy and very easy to control. Unlike other fuel containers, Scepter comes with a lever that allows you to control the flow of fuel, which results in fewer spills & less mess. To fill the container was fast & to distribute the fuel was even faster and less messy!

The smart control is great.. no spills whatsoever and slow to fast flow make this the best.. it is of high quality and stores well in a shed or garage..we will definetly be purchasing one for regular gasoline as well.. highly recommend this one for sure
