I put 5 gallons of diesel in the can and attached the fill hose. The pros are I was able to put the fill hose into the diesel fill port on board and then proceed to fill with out spilling one drop of diesel. The fill hose is long enough to aid in inserting it before pouring but not so long that it becomes cumbersome.
I loosened the vent cap and from start to finish all 5 gallons were poured in 1 minute and 10 seconds. Again without spilling a drop of diesel. I did notice towards the end that there was a sucking noise
from the vent cap and when I removed it completely the diesel flowed even faster so you can probably pour all 5 gallons in under a minute with the vent cap removed.
The only down sides are once the fill hose is attached to the can it really does not become practical to remove it each time, so you are stuck with the hose always sticking out. Not a huge deal but something small to consider.
Also if you are not careful the cap that seals
the fill hose is small and very easy to misplace or drop over board. I am not sure if you can buy the fill hose caps seperately but if you loose the small cap there is no way to close the gas can.
