How on earth can I get it to flow. I read the instructions on the can: push the dark Green button as far as possible, then while holding button in squeeze the lime-green part by palm, using the projection on the top of nozzle to squeeze the lime-green part toward that projection. It did NOTHING, none of the gas came out. Now so much for "No Spills thru nozzle". I need a better system, other than removing the spout and pouring directly from the can.

Gasoline should always be kept in an outdoor structure such as a tool shed, storage barn, or separate, unattached garage. If you should have any questions call our customer service at 918-857-3252. Also you can visit our website Secepterusa.com. Thank you Customer Service Department.

Scepter 5 Gal. Smart Control Gas Can is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 151.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to use I thought at first that this gas can would be very convenient and easy to use. I was excited to try out the new can and see how the Scepter 5 Gallon SmartControl Gasoline Container. It is nice to have a larger can so that you have enough gas to fill all of your equipment, but after filling the can, it was very heavy and I was not able to lift it very much. A smaller can would probably be better so you are able to carry it around. Also the spout was not very long, so it made it very hard to tip the container over so that I could fill the equipment up. It was also hard to push up on the safety lock and also tip the container over. I like that there is a safety lock on it so that no one can get into the container and spill it or play with it. The flow of the gas coming out of the container is very slow. It makes it very hard to fill up your equipment while holding it and being heavy. In all I really enjoyed the nice safety features of this can so everyone can be safer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting design... Just a little confusing. I got this new 5 gallon gas tank recently to replace an old one that either was borrowed and never made its way back, or that I lost. It looks really interesting, higher “tech”, more modern, and like it’d be a bit safer than the standard ones we’ve all been use to. The issue I ran into is that it took me a while just to feel comfortable filling up my mower. In the end I was able to accomplish that. It can take a bit to figure out the flow of the nozzle but I was able to mow. Out of curiosity the next thing I wanted to try was to see if I could fill up my vehicle if I ever ran out of gas and had the need to. This was something I was not able to accomplish. I would’ve needed a funnel to make it possibly work. Overall it’s a nice gas can that meets the requirements of new guidelines and has a good look. It works for many basic purposes, but you will run into difficulties with things like filling a vehicle, and it pours rather slowly. Depending on their needs I would recommend this to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more spills! I love this new design they came up with, I wish I had this thing a long time ago, the container I have now spills all over the place and just is junk. This one you can push the lever to let how much you want out, it be full flow or slow flow, and when filling it up, it doesn't spill out like the others due to the neck design inside that goes down. I no longer have to worry about spills like I did the other or worry about when I turn it over to pour into my lawn mower or whatever that the gas is going to just go everywhere before I get it in the spout. This thing also has the flame mitigation device in it, which makes me feel a little safer than before. I love this design and think it's the beat design out there. I've just owned other brands that didnt have any cool features , I did buy one that had the nossle lock if you pull it back and it broke off, i said I'd never buy another new design again, but came across this and changed my mind, so glad I did. It sure makes it easier to use when I need to add gas to something for sure. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Safety features are buggy I'm torn on this review. On one hand, I like the idea of more safety features; serious injuries can take place so suddenly that it's nice to have redundant safety features in place. On the other hand, this is a total pain to use. Yes, the company provides video's on the proper way to use which helps a lot - on the other hand, not everyone is going to take the time to view and will inevitably get frustrated...or worse, remove the safety features and create something even less safe. Last but not least, should something so simple be complicated enough to require video viewing to function properly? Not really. The container is very well made, sized right for easy storage and the idea is terrific. This works okay once you get the hang of it but is still better for small engines, mowers etc rather than spare fuel due to the pouring spout. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I almost didn't buy it because of them, but I had no other options, so I gave it a try. It looks like the negative reviews related to how slow it is to fill up and dispense, and the ergonomic design. There is a filter type thing installed in the opening when you take off the nozzle. It's designed to prevent fire from entering the gas can. I filled it up with that left in and had no problems. Filled it up with a gas pump in about a minute. Regarding the design, there is a small hook on the bottom of the nozzle. You are supposed to rest that hook on the opening of the gas tank, and then push the dark green lever down, while also pressing down on the bigger light green block looking thing. When doing that, it works great. The only issue I had was really slow and sloppy flow one time, but I realized it was because I forgot to take the cap off the nozzle... oops! Anyway, I found it works well and fills up and dispenses quickly. Five stars, IMO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the safety features So my Scepter  5 Gallon SmartControl Gas can is wonderful. Before using make sure to watch the video on how to use this gas can. It explains everything and I practiced using it without gas in it a few times before actually filling it up to get the hang of it. Super easy to use, well made. Its durable. The handle is easy to carry it. It has a controllable flow so you can squeeze it more for more gas to come out or less for less gas. It has an auto shut off so when gas meets the spout it stops which is so nice so you dont spill!! I've used it primarily for lawn equipment and it works great. I like that is has these safety features, gas cans always made me nervous but I feel much safer using this with the flame mitigation device (to prevent fires) the safety lock and auto shut off. My new favorite gas can! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy simple gas can I recently got this 5 Gallon SmartControl Gasoline Container for my husband who has had a battle with other gas cans that are so difficult to operate! The spout on this gas can is very simple to use. Simply remove cap on the end, push forward on the dark green tab to vent and then push forward on the light green block and the gas will come out. The spout is angled in such a way that it is easy to hold the can, whether you are filling a lawn mower or a truck. It did leak a bit, but not a lot. Filling up the gas can is not hard, the nozzle screws right off, you can see the level of gas as it fills, so you know when to shut off the gas pump. It DOES have a flame mitigation device installed in the neck. Transporting the can is nice becasue it has the cap which is attached to the nozzzle so you don't lose it. No spilled gas in your truck when you get home. Overall we love this 5 Gallon SmartControl Gasoline Container and it has replaced our other gas cans that were so difficult to use. My husband uses it to put gas in his mower, Ranger and his truck if he needs gas in it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast flow and no spills! I got this Scepter 5 gallon Smart Control Gasoline container and was so excited to give it a try, I for one don't like the traditional flow from regular jugs and with this Scepter jug the flow is fast and it's super easy to Refill my mower and gasoline powered equipment. There's a lever on the spout that a tally locks, and you press it and push when you are ready to pour, this minimizes any accidents and spills. I really like this spout, with the other jugs they would spill gas here and there and with the Scepter Smart Control there are no worries about spills. The Scepter Smart Control Gasoline container is durable and heavy duty. I feel I'll get several years use. It has definitely served it's purpose well already and I recommend it for safety and anyone in the market for a new gasoline jug. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
