Overall a good solid gas can. It is made of a heavy durable plastic, and while it does have a new spout on it that we weren't quite used to, it really wasn't hard to figure out. Just had to read the instructions, which felt a little silly it being a gas can but, sometimes you need extra help. It holds five gallons of gas which is nice, great for filling up a mower.
Instructions sure help in using this new fangled gas can. I'm assuming that those who have complained about using the spout haven't read or don't understand the instructions. It works great once you know how to use it.
This gas can has a very complicated pouring mechanism, which in my case did not work. There are several videos on
the internet showing how one can take it apart and disengage the new pouring system. Nothing I could do would let me
push down the red button to even get started. I returned the gas can.
The actual gas can is okay, but the government mandated "no spill" spout causes more of a mess than the old type. The biggest issue is that it's very hard to use the gas can single handed because you must first disengage the spout lock, then either press the spring loaded spout on a lip of the gas tank, or you must hold the spout in so that gas flows. Once you let go of the spring loaded spout you have to try disengaging the lock, and that's virtually impossible.
While the actual can is good, it would have been nice if the manufacturer would develop a simpler spout. The best thing to do is replace the no spill spout with a traditional spout.
