    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.

    For Gas Fuel Water Can Jug. Premium Material: Universal gas can vent cap is made of premium stainless steel and premium rubber, rustproof and durable. Easy Operation: Simple to install the valve stem and rubber sealing ring onto the can via a wire after drilling a hole through the can, then screw on the dust cap finished.


    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.

                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:

                      RotoPaX Fuel Containers All of the gas containers Rotopax manufactures for the United States are molded using our patented three layer design. This state of the art molding technique exceeds the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and CARB (California Air and Research Board) requirements. Making Rotopax the only Rotational molded EPA and CARB compliant container on the market. The Rotopax Gas containers are offered in various sizes depending on your needs. 1, 1.75, 2, 3, and 4 gallon. Remember to vent the pax regularly.      


                      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!
