Eagle calculates that the few that do complain or returns the product is an acceptable loss.

I purchased this safety gas can along with a similar Justrite product Justrite 7250120 AccuFlow 5 Gallon, 11.75" OD x 17.50" H Galvanized Steel Type II Red Safety Can With 5/8" Flexible Spout to replace a 30 year old Blitz Jerry can. Having got both at the same time and having experience with both side-by-side, I can't help but compare them. I consider this Eagle can to be the better of the two, despite the higher price. I use these safety gas cans for emergency gas supply for my family's vehicles, for back-up gas supply when I go camping in the boonies, and for supplying home-based gas-powered tools. Based on my experience so far:

Pros:

* Leak proof - This can has not leaked vapors or liquid despite much sloshing around and handling. The safety venting device does work well to release pressure when the can has been left in the sun.

* Construction - This can is made from heavy gauge galvanized steel and has proven to be tough, durable, and dent-resistant. One feature of its construction that I especially like: it is a two piece design, lacking the usual seam down the side found on three-piece can designs. While it does have a vent that is designed to release pressure, the design of the can makes it especially robust and more resistant to bursting. The fact that it has no side seam should also make it less likely to leak from an impact to the side. I think this makes the Eagle can superior to the construction of the Justrite can in terms of construction.

* Nozzle - The nozzle for this can is removable, which is a great feature.

I purchased this gas can because I was looking for a high quality metal gas can with the safety features not found on the cheaper plastic containers. I also wanted one that I could handle fairly well when full.
This can has the safety features I was looking for in that it is self venting. When heat builds up around the can (in your garage, in the sun, etc.) and the gas expands, the self venting fill port will automatically open slightly and close after it relieves the pressure built up inside the can. (spring loaded)
The can is excellent, however, I gave it a 4 star because when you fully fill the can, the fill/vent port will leak gas out when tilted over if the can is filled to the top. This is because the fill valve safety bar is brought back to open the fill line when filling a gas tank or equipment and opens the vent port automatically, all at the same time for safety.
The first time I filled the can, I filled it to the top. You should not do this as this will cause the gas to run out the fill/vent port and all over you and anything below the can. Since then, I fill it up with about 4.5 gallons or less. It does come with a longer than normal fill line to help reduce tilt on the can.
Overall, I would recommend this can to anyone. A little precaution to place about 4 to 4.5 gallons in lieu of a full 5 gallons and it's perfect for filling with the extended fill line and self venting port. If it's quality and safety you want, this is the can to buy. It's a little pricey, but well worth the comfort of knowing it's safe to store in the garage or shed.

I would have given this product 5 stars if it were not for the reason behind the rest of what I wrote below.
Update: March 2013. Based on my experience with this can and my comments shown below, I've changed my rating to 5 stars.

I am an intelligent person but as a simple consumer/end-user who is dealing with his first type II safety gas can, it took me a while to figure out how to use the darn thing. I hope the following helps.

Please note the following components on this gas can:
First, there is a red handle on the top of the can. One use is to carry this gas can. The other use will be explained below.
Second, there is a horizontal cylinder on the top of the can on one side. The spout screws into one end of the cylinder. On the back of the cylinder is a small round bar that goes into the cylinder. I'll call that a plunger although there is probably a better term for it. The purpose of the plunger is to keep gas and gas fumes from escaping the gas can when not pouring. This is an important safety feature of these cans. Releasing the plunger allows gas to flow when the can is tipped.
Third, there is a vent on the opposite side of the top of the gas can. This is also a safety feature in that it keeps the gas and gas fumes inside the can. When pouring gas, having this vent open reduces the "gulping" action you experienced with older-style gas cans. Gulping is essentially the same problem you run into when pouring soda pop out of a can. The stream of fluid is interrupted by air reentering the can and spillage then becomes a distinct likelihood. If, however, air enters through another opening (in this case, the vent on the top of the gas can), gulping is reduced or eliminated.
Fourth, there is a silver metal bar attached to the plunger.
