Fuel Up at AAPEX 2019 with New Scepter™ SmartControl™ Fuel Containers
MIAMI, OKLA. – Scepter™, a worldwide leader in fuel containers, showcases its newest product in booth #6202 at AAPEX 2019. The Scepter™ SmartControl™ fuel container makes it easy for people in the automotive aftermarket industry to have fuel when and where they need it.
“Nothing happens in the automotive industry without fuel,” says Daniel Marshall, vice president of marketing and business development with Scepter. “Gasoline, kerosene and diesel fuel all link people to projects and activities outside the home. Having a reliable fuel container, where you can easily control the flow of fuel being dispensed, is just as important to consumers as it is to industry professionals.
“In the automotive channels, Scepter now includes a bonus extension funnel with SmartControl. This makes filling autos even easier … even capless tanks.”
Easy-to-use SmartControl containers are available in one-, two- and five-gallon gas, kerosene and diesel sizes. The rugged containers can be filled and safely stored in garages and sheds.
Media attendees at AAPEX 2019 are invited to learn more about SmartControl containers at a press conference on Wednesday, November 6, 2019. Scepter company representatives will present the session “Fast Fills Without Spills: Innovations in Fuel Containers” from noon to 12:30pm in Casanova 603.
Safety First: Selecting a Smart Fuel Container
Whether it’s servicing vehicles or repairing them, SmartControl containers are the back-up fuel containers that help jobs get done quickly and efficiently.
The innovative spout design of SmartControl makes it easier than ever to fuel vehicles. The spout provides a clean, fast, and hassle-free pour and helps save gas for where it’s needed by eliminating messy spills. The user-controlled flow valve with its flame mitigation device (FMD) makes it effortless and safe to direct the amount of fuel being dispensed. And, because the container stores with the spout on, hands always stay clean.
With a single motion, the user simply presses the lever up to unlock the child safety feature with the palm of the hand, and then squeezes the large button. This first squeeze is done when upright to vent the container. Then, place the nozzle over the tank and squeeze again to pour just the right amount of fuel.

Recognized by This Old House magazine as a “Top 20 Best New Product of 2019” in the Lawn & Garden category, SmartControl containers are also the recipient of the “Best in Class” Award at the 2018 National Hardware Show. Constructed in the U.S.A. of durable and safe high-density polyethylene, SmartControl containers can be found throughout the U.S. in The Home Depot®, Walmart®, Lowe’s®, AutoZone®, Pep Boys, Target and Northern® Tool + Equipment stores.
