Costco Gas Can, Scepter Smart Control 5 Gallon


Costco sells this Scepter 5 Gallon Gas Can for $16.99. Scroll down for photos. This is one of those items I ALWAYS keep full in my shed. I’ve got a smaller 2.5 gallon one & it’s great to have around. I use it for my Honda 2200 generator, as well as a few other gas items, & it’s always nice to have fresh gas available. I’ve got a buddy who likes to fill a couple of these up & top his boat off with 5 to 10 gallons at a time. Gas on the water can be very expensive, so this really helps keep the price down. I think I picked mine up at Walmart a few years back & it was around $25 – $30. This is a bargain at only $16.99. Here are a few more details about this Costco 5 Gallon Gas Can……..

Costco Scepter Smart Control 5 Gallon Gas Can


As always, make sure that you store your gasoline properly inside/outside your home. I always keep mine in the shed that has decent ventilation. If I don’t use it for a couple of months I end up topping off my vehicle. The nice thing about that is if I don’t feeling like getting gas before work I can get another 2.5 gallons in my tank, which will get me home & back. These no spill containers are great too! Mine has a similar feature & I have no problem filling my car or generator. No spills & no mess. Don’t forget to fill up at Costco & get your 4% cash back! If you can’t find these at Costco, or want a different size, make sure to check out these HIGHLY RATED gas containers…….

  1. I reached out to the company that makes them. I also reached out to Costco. You are correct it is seasonal. Scepter does still sell to Costco. I couldn’t wait so picked up one at local big box improvement store. I could have gotten a used one cheap but hubby was concerned used container might have oil or other undesirable residue the generator was expensive. It came with all sorts of warnings. Thank you for responding.

    1. Glad to hear you got your hands on one! This happens to me all the time. As soon as I need something that I know Costco has sold in the past, it’s gone. It was a great deal. You could always pick up an extra when you they hit the shelves again. I agree with you on buying a new one. Better to not deal with the hassle of a dirty can. Glad it worked out!

    1. I found this in most Costco’s during the summer. This is a seasonal item that will hopefully be back in spring. I’ll try to keep you posted if I see them again

  2. How do you fill up this gas can at Costco pump. Pump nozzle would not go down in gas can hole???

    I am returning this gas can

    1. Did you pull back on the black cover of the gas pump. It depends on what type of gas pump you have, but when you put the pump in a car, this black cover usually engages the pump. When you put it in a gas can it does not engage, so you have to manually pull back the black cover. It’s a safety feature. I hope that makes sense & I hope it helps
