Hello - Sorry to hear you’ve had difficulty with the Gas Can. This product should only be used with the spout it came with at the time of purchase. They are designed to work together and using any other spout can result in an improper seal allowing harmful vapors to escape. Let’s see if we can help trouble shoot for you. The video "How To Operate Your SmartControl Fuel Container" can be found at the following link and should help: www.scepter.com/starthere/ . There are two steps to using this spout. Step 1. UNLOCK: Using your palm, press the small dark green lock tab in to unlock. Step 2: POUR: Place your fingers over the grip and keeping the lock tab depressed use the palm of your hand and squeeze to slide the large light green pad forward to release the fuel. Please note that the large green block must slide all the way forward in order to achieve maximum flow. There is some stiffness expected when sliding the large green pad forward as that is part of the child resistant feature, however it should not require excessive force. You may find that placing the fuel can flat on the ground and actuating the spout once or twice prior to use may allow the green pad to side easier during operation If you have any additional questions, please reach out to our customer care team at 1-855-857-3252.

Asked by Joe October 13, 2020

Answers

Hi Joe: The SMART CONTROL line of fuel cans contain a flame mitigation device (FMD) which prohibits the use of siphon devices. Our goal is the safety of our customers, so the flame mitigation device has been added to the Scepter fuel container for consumer protection, it's inclusion is also about to become law, it should NEVER be removed from the container. Regarding the weight, a full five gallon gas can is heavy so some customers have decided to use a smaller can which is lighter when full and easier to handle from a weight perspective. If you have any further questions please contact our Customer Care Team at 1-855-857-3252 or 1-800-387-6018.

I can’t get this damned thing to work just like everyone else on here. The instructions don’t make any sense.

I tried filling my car (capless fill tube) and it did not work. Gas spilled, it was a mess. I would say that it would absolutely require a funnel (which I assume Sceptor Customer Service above is suggesting they sell and you can buy). It would be great if they included that with the can....

This can isn't defective. Push the green tab up and then push the large green lag tab in as far as it will go. Then have someone punch a hole in the can to give it pressure relief. Empties the can in 30 seconds. Of course now the can is now as useless as it was before you punched the hole.

why don't gas stations nozzle fit in this container. I had to pull the nozzle shield up in order to fill.

Ruth, not sure what your storage options are but never store gas inside the house. Garage is ok. Having gas in the can is also ok but keep in mind that gas degrades over time. If you are keeping gas in it long term, or in the generator add a fuel stabilizer to it.

Lots of safety features!
Customer review from Scepter logo
This fuel tanks lets me control the flow amount of fuel I need and has lots of safety features. It has a flame mitigation in the opening of the can which helps reduce the chance of a fire or explosion. Inside the tank it looks like a white mesh plastic item. To prevent spills it has a press down tab which removes the fuel tanks cap and it has a fuel tank lid at the tip of the nozzle. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Nice Concept
Customer review from Scepter logo
I was very excited to get this gas can in hopes that it was going to be one of the best gas cans I have ever owned. Unfortunately this is not the case with this one, the concept is awesome; however, the design is awful. there are so many steps to try to get the gas to pour out and I have yet to find a way to not have it spill. The lever you have to pull and push is so hard to actually move and it doesn't have a vent so the flow is super slow; which makes this can almost impossible to use if you are not superman and have three hands. This gas can is actually more work than the normal gas cans. I honestly would not recommend this gas can, unless you are purchasing one for its looks and not functionality.

Wonderful Safety Features!!
Customer review from Scepter logo
Gas cans always make me a bit uncomfortable. When I first got the Scepter SmartControl gas container, I had no idea how to use it. Thankfully, they supply several videos on their website to help answer all questions, so you can use the gas container safely! I feel completely safe using this gas container. After watching the supplied videos I am totally confident. The container is a great size, easy to use handle. The nozzle works great, and the flame mitigation device is the absolute best part! Great gas container, I will never use another brand, Scepter is the way to go! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Safety and convenience
Customer review from Scepter logo
Scepter not only brought convenience, but also added safety with this gasoline container. First of all, the large 5 gallon volume is super convenient. Secondly, the child-safety and fire mitigating features are an added bonus. Takes a few minutes to get accustomed to the safety features, but well worth it! It is made of a durable plastic which allows for an easy lightweight grip and mess-free filling. This SmartControl gas container is perfect for equipment such as lawn-mowers, tractors, etc. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Perfect for on the go
Customer review from Scepter logo
My husband is a property manager and does some of the landscaping. This gas can holds plenty of gas for all of his equipment like the leaf blower and portable power equipment and the lawnmower. It has the safety feature where it is near impossible to spill the gas. It fits great in his bed of his truck and is very durable. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The biggest Piece of S gas can ever.
Unless you like your hands smelling like gas all day and spilling gas both on filling it up and pouring it out, do not buy. First of all, the mesh cover on the inside of the tank doesn't work well with gas nozzles at the pump. The pump's out shut off will trigger, causing a start and stop and splash out when you fill it up -- even when you push the nozzle all the way to bottom of the mesh as the instructions state. But the real fun happens when you try to pour the gas. The push system is difficult to use, but the o-ring after just 4-5 uses has already failed. See the picture of the twisted, worthless part, after trying to reseat it, I just gave up. Now I have to figure out how to pour out the 4.5 gallons left then I can throw this thing away.

Response from ScepterCustomerServiceNovember 12, 2020
Hello - Sorry to hear you have had difficulty with the SMART CONTROL fuel can. There is a screen in the opening of the fuel can which is a flame mitigation device (FMD) for consumer protection. Their inclusion in fuel containers is about to become law. Unfortunately, there are people who misuse fuel and can end up severely injured. Our goal is the safety of our customers, so we’ve added one ahead of the pending regulations. We understand that filling the containers can take a bit longer, but this does add an extra layer of protection for consumers who don’t handle fuel responsibly. . Gas and diesel pumps are different. The FMD contains two internal ledges that the pump must rest on when filling depending on your fuel type. Diesel pumps rest on the first ledge, and gasoline pumps must be inserted to reach the second ledge. We have posted both fill and pour instructions online at www.scepter.com/starthere/ which should help. Our Customer Care Team can assist with a replacement O Ring, they can be reached at 1-855-857-3252. We hope to hear from you soon. Thank you Scepter

Nice Size Gasoline Container!
Customer review from Scepter logo
The smart control gasoline container is a must have! I have the 5 gallon one. The size is perfect! The weight is not too heavy. The material is of high grade. The nozzle attached makes it easy to pour. It also seals tight so you don’t have to worry about any spills or leakage. I store it in the trunk of my car in case of a emergency. My pros are the quality of the product and how sturdy it is and the size and weight. There are no cons for me! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
