I bought a couple of cheap plastic 1-gallon gas cans from ******* which leaked gasoline from the mold line. That is not good. So I went to Sears to see what they had, and found this heavier-duty 2-gallon can that was just a little more than the 1 gallon can. NO LEAKS! So I am very happy, and wished I had shopped Sears first.
I am pretty positive that this is the new gas can I purchased several months ago, it looks the same as this one. It says no spill, I could not pour the gas out of the can with the "new" spout! It poured everywhere but where I wanted the gas to go. If I am not correct about this spout, I appologize, but if it looks like the bottom is closed, it is definately the same one and if it is, I would not reccommend it to anyone. What happened to the old spout that you screwed on and it poured into anything nicely. This new thing that you are suppose to somehow lift the bottom while pouring and it comes out everywhere else other than the bottom is the most poorly made thing. Now I just have disguarded the spout piece and use a funnel, which isnt very easy for someone with a bad back and neck.
Not sure how much you can say about a gas can, but this one seems fine. It holds more than I need for the mower and seems sturdy.
I bought this along with the 1 gallon gas can when I bought my Weed Eater without reading the instructions on the label. When I tried using it I could't get it to pour gas. This is ridiculous.
Why did they get rid of good gas tanks... horribly configured. Leaks, no easy way to pour, only success I've had is removing the spout all together and using a funnel.
Though very well made, the pouring mechanism requires that downward pressure be applied to open the spout valve. This is unwieldly since you're also trying to support the weight of the fuel.
This can was designed with a safety mechanism. It's a pain to use. I finally gave up and take the nozzle off and use a funnel. Really horribly designed. Save yourself the trouble - buy a different product.
This is a very sturdy gas can. The top seals well, and the spout makes it easy to fill your tank without spilling. I liked it so much, I bought a second one for my oil/gas mix.
Works well, no issues.
Getting gasoline out of this can requires a PhD. The last gas can I bought (many years ago) was a simple affair. This one, due to Federal regulations, no doubt, is barely functional. When the gas can is more elaborate than the lawnmower, something is wrong.
This item saved us when we ran out of gas. It's light and easy to use.
gas storage for lawn mower and snow thrower
ITEM IS VERY GOOD AND I WOULD BUY AGAIN.
PERFECT SIZE THANKS !!!!!
Bought this with my new lawn mower. At first I didn't get it tight enough when I was pouring the gas, so it spilled a bit. Then figured it out a bit better and it did work better but always seems to leak a bit - even with turning the spigot inside or outside. Overall good product.
The design is so convoluted that the associate couldn't even figure it out. Bought it anyway and figured it out on my own but still unhappy. In an effort to minimize gas spills, they've made it too cumbersome. Must be a govt mandated design-I cannot find any other type of gas can.
What more can you say about a gas can. I had to figure out the nozzle the hard way (never dealt with one like this before), but once I got it figured out, I understand the safety concept. The good thing is, you're kids would have to work hard to hurt themselves playing around with this thing and...some adults would have to as well. :)
It is per new regulations for safety that gas can spouts have to be very difficult to use.
I ended up spilling gas on half the mower, then I broke the plastic spout part and a spring popped out as I tried again to engage the safety device. My husband just shoved the parts (without the spring) back together and it works easily.
ordered online and thought i was getting an enviro-flo plus gas can, but when i went to pick it up at the store they gave me a smart-fill gas can, they told me this was what they carry now and not the other, but i could get a refund if i wanted, very nice , but just not what i ordered. so make sure they have the one you want before you go to pick it up.
perfect size for taking on rides in the woods.
