    Drawn and Quartered

    ...the guy, or group, who not only concocted the idea of these "new" @#$%^ gas cans...

    They should be hunted down, dragged, tar-n-feathered, hung slowly, drawn and quartered, choked, water-boarded, shot in each appendage, repaired, then shot again...



    Thank You California

    I have an old 5 gallon metal safety can that I wouldn't/couldn't do without.

    I have spilled more fuel during a single usage of an "EPA can" than I have with all of my old school cans combined. All "new" cans have been retrofitted with EZ Pour spouts except one - and that is my No Spill can. It works flawlessly from a dispensing stand point but it does have one glaring flaw. If you leave it sit around half full or less it will blow up like a beach ball by day and collapse flat by night.

    Curious minds want to know - what is the specific problem with the new gas cans? I’ve never seen any - my gas cans are all at least 20 years old.

    My initial response was to stare into space similar to the way Elaine did on Seinfeld when her friend asked her if there was anything wrong with Kramer. :-)

    I've had two basic issues with the new cans...

    1. Some of them require three hands to unlock the automatic pour spout
    2. Upon dispensing fuel with said automatic pour spout, a portion of the fuel goes onto the ground or your pant leg which is equal to or greater than the amount of fuel that actually went into the tank.

    The image above is one example. To dispense you must first turn the green collar 90-degrees or so and get it to lock in that position. Then you tip the can and apply pressure to the little nub that sticks out and this compresses the spring loaded spout allowing an internal spring loaded baffle to rotate and allow fuel to pass. If you relax the pressure for even an instant the spout re-locks itself and you must begin the procedure all over again. Oh... and yeah... fuel is leaking out all over the whole time.

    OK - thanks. Sure looks like a pain.....I guess I should be glad I hung on to my old ones. I think I have 7 or 8 of them. Some were given to me from a guy in a fire department from the city. Every 2-3 years they have to replace theirs for no real reason.

    Not to mention it takes at least 15 minutes to empty one into your machine, as opposed to a minute or 2 for regular spouts
