Gas Cans

Anyone know where I can buy good gas cans? The only ones I’ve been able to find are the ones with the spring loaded nozzle that I break once a week.

I like the type for you find in motorcycle stores, usually used for dirt bikes. It is more like a gas jug. It’s about 5 gallons and has a 2ft piece of tubing off the cap. You can see how much gas is in it and it’s easy to pour without spilling. I’m going to try to post a link to a picture but it probably won’t work, that’s kind of high-tech for me. -just tried and it wouldn’t let me post a link. If you search for any online motorcycle store and look for “gas can” you will find the jug type.



Nice! Thanks I’ll check out my local store

Welcome to the forum!

you can modify them pretty easily, along with putting a vent in them, I cant stand them gas cans thanks EPA

I just bought a few of these a few weeks ago at a local lawn and power store. So far so good. Those crappy ones they sell at Home Depot don’t even last a week without breaking.

Thanks Seth

Do the ones Seth listed. We get them from Amazon.

Best can ever.

I agree! The cans Seth recommend are more expensive, but we’ll worth it.

I get it that not spending money is important to some people.

Speed, efficiency and safety will all come your way when you spend a couple dollars on a professional fuel can.

Glad I have big tanks on my machine … I don’t even have a gas jug…

actually I have tried all cans and with out a vent in the back you will not get the flow I get, Tim you have me wrong money is no object to me when it comes to getting the proper tools for my business (I actually found that statement a little insulting, I’m sure you didn’t mean it to be that way) , I buy the best and if I cant buy it I make it. What I do find funny is people commenting on things they have never tried before, I have seen that with you on more then one occasion.

Guilty. I do have an opinion on what ever subject you wish to discuss.

And I do enjoy being proven wrong. For it is on those occasions which I learn the most.

If I thought you were a tightwad and that had any bearing on me, I would say “Hey Dave, quit being a tightwad and spend some of that rusty money”.

Speed, efficiency, and safety. That is what I want when dispensing fuel. Your can dumps fuel quicker than mine, but so does a drywall bucket. Safety, efficiency?. No. not even close.

So what was your impression of the can I listed?

Tim you good people in my book :wink:
