3.0 out of 5 stars Worked fine till the cap spilt., November 7, 2010
By 
This review is from: No-Spill 1450 5-Gallon Poly Gas Can (CARB Compliant) (Lawn & Patio)
Purchased this No-Spill gas can the same time I purchased my Honda Generator.

This is a good can, doesn't rust, and won't chafe you or anything else it bumps against.

Smelt gas in the garage the other day. Found out that the black cap, although it looks pretty robust had cracked in half. Can no longer tighten the spout system or use the can. The can is in perfect condition, just that there's no spout sytem due to the broken cap. I donot over tighten the cap, it has an "O" ring so I just make the cap snug.

This unit only lasted a couple years. I only store gas in it for emergencies, filled it maybe four times this past two years.

Not any more. No-Spill was bought out and all cans only have a 3 years warranty from purchase. Since it was a 2010, he just made the date, bigtime.

They lost all revenue from me since they do not honor all the old life-time warrenties anymore.

I purchased two of these cans a while back and have had no problems. I have seen complaints about CARB-compliant gas cans splitting. This is not surprising, since they are hermetically sealed and as we know gasoline expands in the heat and that could split the cans.

What to do? Easy... Assuming you are storing these in a detached shed (and not, say, your attached garage): Just don't tighten the cap too tightly while the can is not being used and no pressure can build up. While this supposedly defeats the objectives of the California "nanny-state", in the end I release a lot fewer fumes into the atmosphere than if my gas container splits open.
