1.0 out of 5 stars DANGER. This product is very dangerous, September 20, 2011
This review is from: Scepter 06792 Flo N' Go Durmax Fuel Container, Wheeled, Red, 14-Gallon (Sports)
I have two of these 14 gallon containers that I bought about 3 years ago. I haven't used them for about 10 months when I filled them up to prepare for Hurricane Irene. Didn't use them so I went to dispense the gas for my boat. I opened the bottom valve and the gas started spewing out from the broken hose. I shut the valve quickly but a significant amount of fuel had spilled. I inspected the hose and noticed that the hose had split from the valve up about 3 inches. It appeared to split on a seam since the break was clean as if made by a razor blade. I cut about 1 foot off of the hose and reattached the hose onto the nipple using a clamp. When I inspected the hose the next day the new length of hose had split as well. I then checked the second tank. The hose had not split but when I tried to pump the gas fuel started spewing from the hand nozzle. I suspect that the hose on that unit split as well. I have contacted the Consumer Product Safety Commission about this very DANGEROUS hose disintegration. I would suggest that if you have one of these, DO NOT USE IT.
