Very useful

To may parts to cap system. Too easy to drop a cap part overboard when filling you water tank. Would like for the caps to be sturdier.

I use two of these "CARB" compliant cans for extra fuel on the deck of a sailboat. The overall contstruction of the cans is great, but the "spillproof" design has caused me to spill more fuel than ever before. The spout does not work as intended, especially in the deck fill of a boat. The spout either won't open or won't close. To make matters worse without a vent in the can attempting to pour into a funnel without the spout creates a huge mess.
I'll be replacing these cans with vented ones in Mexico.

Diesel spill damaged my deck

      Comments about Scepter Manufacturing, Llc 5 Gallon CARB Diesel Tall Jerry Can with CRC (Yellow):

      The fill nozzle assembly on this seems designed to spill fuel. It is physically impossible to get fuel from the jug into the boat's fuel fill without spilling. The plunger mechanism sticks so hard you have to force it to open, and then it tends to spring back unless you lean on the jug. The lack of a breather makes emptying the can a 5-minute procedure - impossible on the deck of a moving boat. I have to use a filter funnel, and pour with the cap and nozzle removed from the jug. The spills destroyed the rubber caulking on my deck and discolored my teak. They are a fire hazard as well - all it would take is a loose ember on a fuel-soaked deck to cause a major fire.

            Fill neck is too small for hi speed diesel nozzles that are often the only choice at some fuel docks. Have to use a funnel. Royal pain.

              Good heavy duty construction.
              The cap seems to work well.

              One negative...some high speed fuel nozzles are too fat to fit into the neck and you need a funnel to fill.

                  There is a small tab on the spout that must be depressed on the rim of the fuel inlet for the diesel to pour from the jerry can. This is a very small piece of plastic that I feel will not last very long. I don't like the type of spout that comes on all of the fuel jerry cans however I know we have to live with them.

                      I bought this diesel can from West Marine to store extra fuel. The new design for the spout is now mandated in many states - including Maryland. Probably looks good on paper - wasn't designed by anyone with an ounce of boating experienc! This spout is an "Eco" design to prevent spills with a "auto" shut off valve. The problem is that with even half a can of fuel, the weight makes it extremely difficult to balance the spount's edge clip on a fuel tank opening so that it opens the valve to let fuel flow into the tank. Mine broke the first time I tried to use it and I spilled some fuel on the deck. Thankfullly, fuel-absorbant blankets were spread out first just in case of a monor spill/drops (as I do with all re-fueling).

                      The can itself is fine. I like the hand hold location. But I'd NEVER buy one of these cans with this new "better" designed spounts again. It's cheap plastic that can't stand up to the task. There are refits on the internet, thankfully. MD isn't doing boaters any favors mandating this design.

                          As I was going to use this portable fuel tank to pour diesel underway I could not get the spout to open up or pour any diesel at all. I am used to these types of systems and this particular spout design is a bad design - in essence 'too safe' :-) as it did not let any diesel out whatsoever. I have been sailing for 15+ years and this is the first time I could not figure something like this out. I am keeping the tank, but will be replacing the spout with a 'good old' one. Otherwise the unit is well made and strong

                              The worst fuel can I have ever used. Poor design and cheap construction. Cap does not tighten securely. Small parts to lose overboard. Can is not vented for good flow. And the eco spout does not work, plain and simple. Spills more fuel than I have ever spilled with any other kind of can. Impossible to use on a boat that is in the water. A complete failure of a product. Makes you wonder if the guys who make these cans ever use them ...
