Re: Gasonline cans recommendations

said by alkizmo:

Well here in Quebec we still have these kinds of nozzles.
In the picture, it's upside down, the venting tube (little ridge underside) should be on the top side for venting.

They work well, but you can't tilt the gas can too much otherwise the venting tube will be flooded.

Yup. Starting at $5 at Canadian Tire.

Those American cans look like somebody trying to over-engineer a simple thing.

Is my choice. They work flawlessly, do not spill contents and stop the flow when the level reaches the tip of the spout. I've had four of these gas cans for over two years now without a single problem!

Are these what you have to use up there? I think a trip to somewhere that you can buy real user friendly cans would be in order.

I have no problems with my cans I've had them for a year the kero cans I've refilled 10 times during the winter and the small can about 15 times.

Watching your video's it's very evident to me that your cans are way more difficult than my old style especially the 6 gallon ones.

Well it's hard to operate with one hand the red can pull the lever back and push down and it pours, release and it closes and locks.

the blue kero can turn to unlock and press down, resting it on whatever you are filling keeps it open, lift to lock.

The best thing is not have to worry about fuel spilling in the car if they splash around.

Have you bought a gas can recently? You may be surprised at what is available.

Another vote for the Nospill can. I bought a 5gal one for $29 from Amazon, and wish I had 3 more. It's perfect for filling my generator and snowblower.

I was impressed with NoSpill Jill's cans, too!

Don't need to buy any. I have enough to last me a lifetime. I have a boat so I use a lot of cans.
