No-Spill gas can?

Anyone using a no-spill gas can? I need a new can and saw these. Just wondering how well they work.

Well....at least insofar as the video demonstration shows, it looks good.



Anything has to be an improvement over this brain-dead series of EPA mandated cans that have come out in recent years. They work so poorly, that most people end up spilling gas all over the place, which of course evaporates into the atmosphere, which is what these stupid spouts were supposed to prevent happening in the first place! They are also virtually impossible to use, when gassing up a small piece of power equipment like a chainsaw or trimmer.

Of course, years ago we solved this problem with a highly technical device known as a screw on "spout"....but the EPA of course, knew better, and recognized the threat that we were to the planet.....

They’re not cheap, about $25 for a 2.5 gal can and $35 for a 5 gal.

I like the old timey five gallon plastic gas jugs with the screw on cap found at any motorcycle dealer.

I had the neck break on my old can and for the life of me couldn't find a decent replacement due to the EPA. I rarely pass a tree I don't hug but that regulation mandating these new spouts IMHO is for the birds. Gas is expensive and I'm careful with my equipment. I think I've spilled more with this new Midwest can and spill proof neck than the old basic cans I've used all my life. I understand what they were trying to do and maybe it works on the one and two and a half gallon cans but it's a pain trying to hold a five gallon can on the lip of the tank to keep it open and it pours much slower as it has to burp since there isn't a vent.
This is one I don't think they managed to get right by a long shot.

I agree with Kiss. I'm concerned about the environment and try very hard never to spill gas or oil. The spill-proof type spouts may work on 1 or 2 gallon cans, but are ungainly on the larger ones. I have 4 or 5 of the simple spout and vent cans that I picked up at garage sales, cleaned out (important) and put to use. I prefer the 2 gallon ones.
