Customer Reviews

Pros are it has a good capacity, the Cons are that the nozzle is too restrictive.
Celia R. Thibodeau
If it does, I would not recommend the gas can (apologies if this review is irrelevant).

These safety spouts have spilled more fuel than ever was spilled by the open spouts!

Pros are it has a good capacity, the Cons are that the nozzle is too restrictive. It takes double the time to get the gas out of the can due to the safety feature in the nozzle.

I purchased a model 5600 (5 gal.). I'm not sure if it has the same spout as this #6600. If it does, I would not recommend the gas can (apologies if this review is irrelevant). It is a self-closing spout with a spring (the nozzle must be twisted then depressed to dispense gas). The spring is stiff and difficult to press down. There is a little plastic lip that is intended to hook on the edge of the gas hole which is too small and therefore constantly slips off (shutting off the gas dispensing). Given the angle of the spount, I can't dispense all the gas into my car. Finally, the gas comes out very slowly when it does come out. It is a frustrating experience to wrestle with this can while trying to dispense gas into my car.

I've been shopping around the area and simply can't find a plastic gas can without some inconvenient "leak proof" dispenser system. Why is it so hard to find an old fashioned gas can that works? I can only conclude that there is some conspiracy out there -- probably a new EPA regulation (well intentioned, no doubt, but unfortunately resulting in products that don't work). Please, I can screw a simple threaded cap on all by myself. I would have given the product a 1-star, but my guess is that it's not Midwest Can's fault.

To their credit, Midwest Can customer service is very responsive. They are sending me a replacement cap for "gas storage," i.e. a simple threaded cap. I'll just buy a funnel to get gas into my car.

I am not going to go into how the nozzle works because it has been covered in other posts. I just want to support the notion that this can is very slow. Not a big deal if you are pouring gas into a weed trimmer but it is a serious pain trying to pour gas into a boat. The last time I tried to fill something it built up with pressure and preceded to spray gas everywhere for quite a long time. I never seemed to have trouble pouring gas until I got my hands on one of these. I would not recommend getting anywhere near a hot engine with this gas can.

I should have listened to the other negative reviews on this product. The container itself is fine, but the spout is absolutely the most worthless design I have ever seen. If you buy this you should also buy another spout, because if you try to pour gasoline using the included spout you will get gas everywhere and probably all over yourself. I had to purchase another spout just to get the gas out of the container and I will never use this product again unless it is an absolute emergency. BE WARNED - you absolutely WILL NOT be able to pour gasoline from this container into your vehicle. Do not buy for this purpose.

I have the 6 gal version of this can.

First get rid of all the CARB parts by putting a flat screw driver in the spout opposite the cap.
Use the screwdriver to pop the plastic catch lips off the shelf and remove the red nozzle, cap and spring and toss them.

Then get a small ( 5/8 in hole) rubber chair leg cap (50 cents at my hardware store) The rubber leg tip makes a perfect friction fit cap for the remaining white spout.

Mod takes less than a minute, cost 50 cents, and you have a can that works!

These CARB compliant cans are very bad. They spill gas all over you, the environment and your gear. Why can't the government politicians trust us to simply put a lid back on the can?

Spout is difficult to hold open. I have not found a safety spout that works easily. This one takes a significant amount of pressure to hold it open and then the weight of the full can collapses the spout. Why can't we go back to the simple open spouts? These safety spouts have spilled more fuel than ever was spilled by the open spouts!

I had originally purchased this can from this Amazon seller but the item was never shipped, I canceled the order and ended up surprisingly finding it at a local gas station. The can is made of thinner plastic than a typical fuel can and the spout pours VERY slowly. I was fortunately able to exchange it for a quality 5 gallon can at the station.

I would not recommend this item due to the poor quality and performance.
