Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The spout construction is terrible. It is impossible to pour without spilling. The mechanism is clunky, and the o-ring at the spout does not seal well. The hard plastic spout makes transportation and storage hard, and I am ever afraid of braking it. The cap is also useless. It is made of hard plastic with no seal. Its hook connects to the spout at location which obstructs the pouring. I tried to find the can with the flexible tube that slides inside it and is pulled out when pouring, but nobody sells those locally. I could only find this terrible type. This piece of crap is hard to use and outright dangerous. Good intention implemented in a very wrong way. I am sure it was created in order to satisfy some legislation, and I am writing this review in hope that the design gets reviewed and a replacement is implemented.
Leaked all over my car. Almost all of these cans I have seen, sold at different locations have the wrong cap!!! The cap is supposed to have a removable insert according to the picture on the cans' label. The cap is what would attach the spout to the can but mine had a solid cap with no opening for the nozzle. I am so angry! I bought this for an emergency when I go 4x4ing miles into the wilderness. This could have been a disaster. Also it leaked all over my car. When I tried to empty it into my cars gas tank so i could return it, that's when I realized it had no way to attach the nozzle to the can! I have had many plastic gas cans in the past. Now I am stuck with this leaky full can that I can't use or safely dispose of. My hummer smelled of gas fumes for weeks causing dizziness, nausea and headaches not to mention the initial fire hazard and that the gas melted my cargo area floor. The cap was on tight but the whimpy o-ring doesn't seal. I have seen this can in one store with the...
I've, in someway or another, had no choice but to buy these cans. (I simply had no other option of brand, it's what was available at the gas station). A simple gas can, how can you screw it up? This company figured out how.
1.For one, because the stout is made from 2 separate parts, filling the can up and then putting the top back on is a hassle. Plus, if you do it incorrectly, which is easy to do, gas will get everywhere. The rubber piece, which acts as a gasket, is rubbish and moves around.
2.The spring inside and the cap broke. That's pretty sad, considering I used that specific can a gently several times.
3.After pulling back the stout to allow flow, fuel can splatter all over.
3.Because there is no alternative intake hole, you will constantly have to stop fueling, pull out the can, and let it "breath". Think of it as sucking all of the air from an empty water bottle.
It's astonishing why anyone would give this a rating...
