    Gas Cans?

    We have a gas can problem. .

    IMG_20210630_103323.jpg

    They all don't vent, so I cut in vents that leak, they all leak out of the threads, the stupid nozels are too short to put gas in anything that you don't have a funnel in, the 'safty" locks always jam and are an absolute pita to use.

    What do you guys prefer to use for gas cans?
    Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

    Not the exact one that I got but I put a vent on my gas can.

    You can also replace the nozzles with the longer older style nozzle without the lock.

      I have replacement nozles for the old hose style, the threads don't fit the cans and they leak like crazy. I don't know what ones work together.

          Race gas cans work well ! Be sure and check that it's ethanol friendly material in reviews or from the seller.

                Really the gas-caddy is the way to go. It pumps, it sucks, it holds 30 gals... I mean really it even has wheels. I used this thing daily in my old motoshop and it was a timesaver.
                Plus its a like a huge metal jerry can.

                  I have one in my outer shop. It's full of non-ethanol with a lead substitute and some fuel stabilizer for my vintage bikes. Plus it's a nice emergency reserve for anything. But mine has rotating casters on the front so I can wheel it around easier with having to lever it up.

                      This is the most awesome gas can I’ve owned, I bought it to strap extra capacity on my dual sport:

                      But potentially too pricey to be if use for your industrial farm purpose.

                      I’ll be curious of the other suggestions.

                        but you need a better solution than filling a bunch of 5 gallon cans.

                          Like I said......step up into the trades and set up a pick-up with 2 big tanks and pumps.Fill machines anywhere.... easy to fill at the station....Then if guys need to carry some extra....just a few cans...or just 2cycle mix.

                            BTW....those gas caddy things suck. You need MOBILE fueling capability.That's all HarryHomeowner shit recommended by other HarryHomeowners.

                              You’re assuming they understand 2 cycle mix!
