Great can

,
February 22, 2013
By William13

"I bought the Jerry can mainly for its tall and narrow shape. I pull a small 4X4 trailer with my car and was looking for a can that took up less space but held the 5 gallons I needed. I was so impressed with the Jerry can that I bought a second one. I found that two go in the front of my trailer leaving enough room for a third which I plan on buying. I wish the price was a bit lower but it is a great can."

Good But Not Same

"This is a good can that feels very sturdy, but it is not the same size as the regular steel jerry can. It is larger in width and may not seat all the way in a steel jerry can holder."

Don't buy it. Horrible leaking spout.

April 17, 2012
By PremierLER

"I am returning this can for a refund and puchasing a different brand. The "leak free" "ECO" friendly spout leaks badly and there is no way to fix it. It is not defective. It is simply a poor design for a spout. I thought about making my own spout with parts from a hardware store, but cannot due to the proprietary threads on the neck. Aside from leaking, the spout also has an "integral" vent but it also does not work well. Pours VERY slowly. There is no vent to open anywhere else on the can. The can is also hard to hold onto when it's full. And the sides bulge out considerably when pressure builds. Don't take my word for it? Look this can up on net and you'll see 100's of complaints just like mine. Wish I'd have seen that 1st. I love Northern Tool but I think they should drop this line(Scepter) of gas cans from the inventory."
