      Answer This Question

      A:  looked it up online, and it id 2 to 5 years, Adding a fuel stabilizer once a year should keep the kerosene in good condition indefinitely.

      by|Jan 23, 2022

        A:  Hi Sty14 - The Kerosene cans are designed for short term storage. Typically, you would purchase the Kerosene, use it over a reasonable period and then refill the container. For information regarding how long the Kerosene will last, we recommend you contact the manufacturer of the Kerosene. If you have any further questions, please contact our Customer Care Team at 1-855-857-3252.

          A:  Hello Graciela - Our apologies, we regret that you’ve had difficulty with the fuel can. This product is designed to be used with your palm, the video "How To Operate Your SmartControl Fuel Container" can be found at the following link and should help https://www.scepter.com/safety/instructional-videos/ To operate VENT the fuel can first, then there are two steps to using this spout. Step 1. UNLOCK: Using your palm, press 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 green block forward to release the fuel. The large green block will need to slide all the way forward to achieve maximum flow. If you have any further questions or are still having difficulty, please reach out to our Customer Care Team at 1-855-857-3252 for assistance. Thank you, we are here to help!

            Q:How do I get that tube out of the tank so I can use my siphon? Some of us older folks don't want ...

            Answer This Question

            A:  Simply drill a hole in the top of can, insert siphon.

            by|May 17, 2021

              A:  When I looked at it on home depot website, it showed "people frequently also bought" and the siphon was beside the container. I think most people would look at that and think you could use a siphon, like I thought. Maybe this should be corrected if not possible. Borderline false advertising.

                A:  Hello Bob- Thank-you for taking the time to share your feedback. We're sorry to learn of your frustration with the cans. The tube you describe in the neck of the containers 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. The FMD should never be removed from the container. We have posted both fill and pour instructions online at www.scepter.com/starthere/ which should help. As a suggestion, some customers have decided to use a smaller can which is lighter when full and easier to handle from a weight perspective. If you require any additional troubleshooting, please contact our customer care team at 1-855-857-3252.

                  A:  Mr.Bob you cannot remove the filter. This defeats the purpose of this device. Older sir do not put in more than you can pour ,or get someone to assist you. Do not forget you have a spout that is “user friendly”. This phrase means you can pour without spills. Purchase of a smaller ( you can lift) can with this spout. Sir you need a storage drum of some type - you have purchased a 5gal.can.

                    Very hard to use, don't buy!
                    Squeeze spout hard to operate - takes an iron grip to make the fuel flow. But what is worse: No handle on the back. A full 5-gallon can is heavy, so you need a back handle (photo on right). To pour with a full Scepter can you would need 3 hands.

                    Response from ScepterCustomerServiceJan 19, 2022
                    Hi HansW - We're sorry to hear you've had difficulty using your fuel can. After VENTING the fuel can, there are two steps to using this spout. Step 1. UNLOCK: Using your palm, press 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 green pad forward to release the fuel. This video may also help: https://www.scepter.com/safety/instructional-videos/ . 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 slide easier during operation. For your convenience there is a hook on the underside of the SMARTCONTROL spout that can rest on the lip of the receiving tank, using the hook when pouring helps alleviate much of the weight. Tilt the can up from the bottom using one hand, following the instructions for the spout operation with the other hand. If you have any further questions or are still having difficulty, please reach out to our Customer Care Team at 1-855-857-3252 for assistance. Thank you, we are here to help! Scepter

                      Awesome safety features
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I almost had a gas can blow up on me when I was filling it at the gas station so I can appreciate a good can when I see it. This container has amazing safety features so that type of thing does not happen to someone. Watching the videos on how to use the can beforehand was very helpful. These videos are provided on Sceptor's website. The can is very durable and good quality so I'm sure I'll be using this for years to come.

                        Great for Lawn Mowers!
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have been wanting a good scepter. My Husband and I were both pleased with this 5 gallon one. The size was perfect. This was great for emergenices in our vehicles, emergencies with a power outage and needing our genartaor. As well as great when needing to fuel up our lawn mower. This tank itself was very durable, hard plastic that you can tell was made with stunning quality. Durable as can be! Sturdy! And the perfect nossle, protecting from spills with such a well thought of design!

                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had had this for a couple weeks and we like to travel a lot so we like to have spare gas just in case. I like this new one with the new spout is makes it so much easier to use and no spillage. Great features.

                            Child Proof and Spill Proof!!!
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great design for a safer jug. It pours faster due to it let's air flow while pouring. But you can control how fast you want it to come out by pushing the button more or less. It will not pour if it was to fall over which is a great design for transporting it in your car. And it is child safety to. It was simple to figure out how to operate. It has a flame mitigation device in the top of the jug that you can see when you remove the spout. It is made of great quality materials. I would highly recommend this product!!!

                              Great safety features
                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is great for me to keep some kerosene at my house on stand-by for when I need It. I love all the safety features on it. Small hands of my kids can't open it. Also don't have to worry about It spilling. It also feels really solid and sturdy. Basically most importantly, i feel safer with this one in my garage compared to other gas cans I have seen and had.

                                Safety matters
                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This can has been a wonderful gas can to use. I needed To get gas for cutting my grass. I sent My husband up to fill up the gas can. It was very easy to fill up and the best part is that it’s super safe. The part on the inside is to keep it from catching fire. I also Like the way that it holds five gallons. My other cans are super small and don’t hold that much gas. This one holds enough gas for this time I’m cutting grass and the next two times. The color of the van is nice also. It’s a real nice blue can. Also the back where you put the gas in the car is easy to use. It’s a small switch on the back. That way your gas doesn’t leak out.

                                  Great Container But Hard To Pour
                                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This 5 Gallon Container is a well made and very sturdy.container. It holds up to 5 gallons of Gas or Kerosene and it has a Big wide handle that makes it really easy to hold while pouring the liquid. It has a Scepter that is really hard to use. I could not figure out how to remove it in order to fill the can and how to use it to pour the gas out of the container. It was really hard to use and to figure out how it worked even with the instructions that came with it. I think that if this container had a better option of how to use and pour the liquid from the container it would be perfect. Besides the pouring problem I think the Container itself is great and I would buy it again if it had a better pouring option.

                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Its not as complicated as might seem to some. It is a simply push with your palm and pour. Its great . We have less dripping and zero spills. Its handy to use even with my arthritic hands. We are glad we chose this one.
