Q: Can this also be used for kerosene?

submitted by KAS - 2 years ago
  • A: Kas, first off thank you for your question. Containers are colored for regulatory reasons, but all of our fuel containers are treated with a protective layer. We also sell blue Kerosene containers.

Q: How do I stop it from spraying gas out the opening of an empty can and how do I stop it cutting off immediately no matter how gently I squeeze? I was at a pump where you have to push the pump in to the can.

submitted by Marochka - 2 years ago
  • A: Marochka, you need to release the pressure that builds up inside your container before each use. This is called venting. You can do this by slowly loosening the black screw cap for a few seconds. Make sure you re-tighten the cap before dispensing fuel. Some gas stations are very high flow and you need to gently begin to fill your container. You can slowly increase the speed once you find the perfect rate. There are many helpful vidoes on our website. Please visit https://midwestcan.com/faq/

Q: Is there another handle on the side of the gasoline can?

submitted by countrygirl43 - 3 years ago
  • A: CountryGirl43, first off thank you for your question. Our larger 5 gallon containers have 2 handle design for ease of use. There is a handle located at the top of the container and also the backside.

Q: How do I order a replacement O washer that goes to the base of the Quick-Flow Spout? The one I have is cracked and now the can leaks gas whenever I tried to pour it into my car. I bought my cans 6-months ago (9/11/2020).

submitted by Eddy - 3 years ago
  • A: Eddy, please send me a direct e-mail at kevinm@midwestcan.com I would have no issue sending you a courtesy replacement for your spouts gasket.

Q: Hard to fill it up. Have to be really careful or it spill at the gas station. Wish was an easier way?

submitted by Zelcolf - 3 years ago
  • A: Zelcolf, when filling your container please start out slow and increase speed as allowed. Gas stations flow at different speeds. You will find that some stations can pour at full speeds and some you will need to ease into the flow. To relate it would be like taking a hose and shooting it directly into a bucket, there will be splash back unless you control the hoses flow. If you have any questions please reach out to www.midwestcan.com Thank You

Q: What’s the proper way to store the fuel. With the spout facing out or in and is the red disc supposed to stay there when fuel is inside. I am used to the fuel can with yellow breathing cap.

submitted by Laura - 4 years ago
  • A: Laura, thank you for the question. If your fuel container currently has fuel inside it is best to store the container with the spout fully assembled on the can. The red disk (spout cap) should be placed on the tip of the spout so that debris will not be able to enter spout.

KevinK - 6 months ago
Splitting at the seam on top and leaking! Two of these purchased several months apart, last spring and summer. These are extremely dangerous and should be recalled! It's no surprise, there is no valve to release pressure, they swell up like ballons in the summer! Unbelievable that companies are allowed to make products to store dangerous things with such a bad design!
1 reply from Midwest Can Support team - 6 months ago
Kevin, thank you for addressing your concerns. It's been over a decade since the Government put standards on US sold fuel containers. One of those being the removal of any external vent holes. The instructions on your label states that you must slowly open the screw cap in order to release the pressure built up and vent your containers. During storage your containers will build pressure and the pressure needs to be released in the manner described on the instructions. If you need any further assistance, please reach out to us directly or send me an e-mail at KevinM@midwestcan.com

Leaky from day 1

Texas Bigdog - 7 months ago
Difficult to fill the tank. You need to control the refill speed / position carefully and fill it slowly. More difficult to transfer the gas to the car / generator. It leaked from day 1. Now it leaked even more and I checked it carefully. Turned out the seal ring was not installed correctly and it was damaged. Don't buy it!
1 reply from Midwest Can Support team - 7 months ago
Texas Bigdog - I am sorry about your experience with your container. It sounds like the issue is from a torn gasket. Please reach out to our home office at (708) 615-1400 or e-mail me directly at KevinM@Midwestcan.com and we will be happy to replace your gasket so your container functions as it should.

Useless product - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
We found these gas cans to be unuseable. It is impossible to transfer gas from these cans into our water vessels without leaking large amounts of gas into our waterways. If anyone has a fix for the spouts we would be grateful to know about it. Otherwise - they are useless to us...

If you are having any issues with your containers, we urge you to reach out to Midwest Can customer service or you can e-mail me directly at KevinM@midwestcan.com If your container is leaking, I would be more than happy to assist you and replace any parts that may be causing the leak.

Bob6525 - 1 year ago
I made the mistake of buying 5 of these for my generator and I went to fill them and it took me about 10 minutes to fill each can. That supposed safety crap they put in the opening makes it take forever to fill the gas cans. I can fill my car quickier than the gas can. Too much unneeded safety crap on these to do their job correctly. Do not buy these as they are a piece of crap!

I bought 3 of these 5 gallon gas cans to fully use my shop n save gas points. My gas tank holds 15 gal we had been wasting 15 gallons worth of .60 per gallon gas every few months. These gas cans paid for themselves.

Easy to hold because of handles on to & back. The only problem is that the red piece on the spout fell off into the can; I had to strain it out. I don't use the spout, so I just threw that part away.

Texas Dale - 2 years ago
1 Difficult to fill at gas station, the stupid design will shut off the gas dispenser a few times before you can fill it. You need to control it and let it flow very slowly... 2 Difficult to empty the gas can. And there will always be some gas left in the can which will be wasted and pollute the air! I give it one star since this is the lowest rating I can give.
