EPA approved 5-gallon Jerry Style gas can

Customer Reviews

I spilled gas several times in my attempt to get this to work.

We tried several times and then went to their website (as referenced on the can) only to find out that the videos there don't match the products they sell.

Do I blame the manufacturer or our own government for passing a stupid law that requires these CARB spill proof spouts?

This plastic can which is approved by the Califoria Air Resources Board leaks. The specially shaped seal deteriorated after about a year of service. Replacements are unavailable. The nozzle is too short to reach safely into the gas tank and the plastic container is easily damaged plastic construction. During transport the nozzle cannot be placed in a safe condition. It sticks up in the one available fixed-position. It is dangerous, but the fact that the manufacturer does not respond to email inquires for replacement seals means the can is useful for about a year.

STAY AWAY from this can.

This is about the worst piece of engineering I have come across in years. (If engineering was involved at all in its design)

1.) There is no conclusive description of how to close and open the safety mechanism.
2.) The mechanism is faulty
3.) It takes time to figure it out
4.) Using the spout means you always get your fingers dirty with fuel
5.) The spout is leaking

I wasted an hour on this mechanism and spilled a pint of gas in the process.
In short: Useless and dangerous

BTW, I was trained in the army as a fuel and ammunition handler.

Size Name: 5-Gallon, Military Style
This was the first gas can I have bought in years. The salesman demonstrated briefly how the system works. I got home and neither I nor my son can make the can work correctly without gas seeping out and running all over our hands and the equipment. We tried several times and then went to their website (as referenced on the can) only to find out that the videos there don't match the products they sell. Our mechanism for pouring was for more difficult to use and far less stable than what their video showed. Bottom line, both cans go back tomorrow. Horrid product. Run away!!

Pros:
The Scepter ECO gas can is the sturdiest consumer grade 5 gal. plastic can I've seen--much more so than the typical 5 gal. cans found most places. It stands up nice and tall, so it's easier to store more gas in the same amount of floor space than with most of the typical fatter, shorter plastic cans (or the round metal ones). Compared to the the much more expensive metal cans in a similar form factor, this can won't dent and is certainly lighter. This form factor is well suited for toting around on a Jeep or in the back of a truck, or for storing generator gas in the shed.

Cons:
They're not stackable (but neither are most consumer cans). They're plagued with cumbersome and messy C.A.R.B. compliant spouts (just like every other consumer can sold today). If you're just pouring gas into your push lawn mower, stick to the two gallon cans--managing any tall 5 gal. can while trying to manipulate the CARB spout will be a bit cumbersome.

Misc:
This is not a consumer version of Scepter's military can: the dimensions are a little different (a bit taller and narrower); this only has one handle instead of three; it doesn't stack; and this can's threaded opening is smaller.

I could not for the life of me get the unlocking mechanism to actually let me pour fuel into my vehicle. The only gas that would come out of the can came from the leak where you screw the spout on. I can use it now because I put the spout under a drill press and punched through the internal locking device. No other leaks or deficiencies, but for the price it is definantly not worth it. I would pay no more than $15 for this POS, only because you can make it usable with a little work and it fits into the jerry can rigs for your vehicle.

I have 2 of these cans and the spout has stopped working after 1 year. The plastic or rubber components are not well made. And I cannot get a replacement.
NOTE: I did contact the company and they replaced the spouts. They are difficult to contact and it tool 2 separate mailings to get the spouts and screw on connectors, but they were replaced. So I am updating this comment to note that.

The vendor did well.

The container is typical of modern American, nearly useless, but super safe, mediocre products.
