Bring back the old style gas cans
« on: May 02, 2018, 03:44:16 PM »
Something everyone should agree on -Bring back the old style gas cans!  :mad:

Or at least the old style pour spouts! :thatsright:

Well ... Someone did! :yahoo:

The old style gasoline cans with the separate spout and vent worked fine.

You could fill your lawnmower without spilling a drop.

About ten years ago, the EPA mandated the new "environmentally friendly" gas cans.
It is almost impossible to fill your lawnmower using these without spilling gasoline everywhere, including on the hot engine.

I'll bet the new rule came from someone who never even cut their own lawn.
How does spilling gasoline all over help the environment, your safety and your wallet?
Bring back the old style cans!

It's a shame that videos no longer show in this forum!

Hey, those plastic cans like I've shown above, are really nice.  6 gal. and the very flexible hose is great.  I carry them in the back of my Ranger when we're out playing in the woods.  I've only got 3 of them right now, but I'm going to get about 3 more.

Yeah, the newer ones blow.  They have a stupid stopper switch that you have to try to hold back while pouring, it doesn't work very well and it's awkward as hell to try to hold it back and pour.  Hate it.

To be fair, I bought the last plastic gas can about 3 years ago, and that one was about the 3rd or 4th I'd ever bought. Sucked donkey balls then and I just threw the damned thing out a couple weeks ago.

It would appear the newer designs work mo betta. The previous piles of shit didn't work worth a damn.

I have steel now, and that's what I'm using.  :fuelfire:   :killemall:

I am not sure, but I'm thinking that those 'racing' style gas cans like I'm using can only be sold as long as they're not advertising them as gas cans.

Those new plastic red ones that have those stupid things that are supposed to make them leak proof are worse than any can that ever used a donkey dick.  I only bought one of those things and saw how bad it was to use so I made my own top for it.

Amazing how badly the government can screw up something as simple as a gas can.
