    Forgive me if I vent! Or as with modern gas cans, not vent, just trickle very slowly. Would anyone else out there like to get ahold of the moron that thinks American people are not smart enough to pour gas into their mowers with out the stupid safety cans{#emotions_dlg.typotux (25)}? I absolutley dread having to pour gas any more! I think it would be faster to load the mower on the trailer and drive to town to the filling staion everytime than use one of these new cans. Sorry, but I do feel a little better now.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_big_smile}

    They do suck… I’ve seen a couple of newer designs that do a good job, but I’m not getting rid of my old cans any time soon.

    haha..i have a few plastic safety cans.  hate them.

    the safety can i do like are the ones my contractor uses.  they are red (of course), metal, and have that yellow funnel attached to the opening.  you have to pull back on a lever to open the spout.  they fill generators and tools pretty simply.  zero fanfare.

    downside?  they are expensive.  i think just shy of $100 for a big one.  no so sure they are great at filling up a car.  tools only, i think.

    I saw a TV program about the Blitz gas can company.  They are what our local wal mart carries.  It talked about how many law suits they were facing and how fighting them was costing million of dollars which was causing the company hardships.   These lawsuits costs were trickling down causing them not to be able to hire new people or expand.   Some of the lawsuits were because idiots were pouring gas on a open flame and got burned.  They even talked about they were going to be required to put in a spark arrester devise that would help keep fire from entering the can.  It’s crazy to think that people are to stupid to realize that gas and flames don’t mix.   Their stupidity is causing a company and its employees money and all of us frustration.

    I figured it was because of lawsuits! Oh well, I filled the mower yesterday so I won’t have to get mad for 3 more weeks at least. Just hate those things with a passion!!!

    Was thinking about some new cans. Sounds like I better make do with the old ones. The safety spouts I looked at were a little pricey.  Guess I’ll have to keep spilling a little gas when I fill up the tanks.

    Hot coffee will burn the hair off your scrotum, and pouring gas on an open flame will cause the flame to follow the fuel source…….I knew these facts well before I was a teen.  Geezzzz some people are flat out idiots. There should be a law against stupid people filing stupid lawsuits.  Its screwing with the natural selection process big time……{#emotions_dlg.wobble-duh}

    Glad I have my old vented 6 gal can one after reading what these new cans are like. I have seen spouts that will vent back that come with some gas cans. I have a small one gal can that has something like that in the spout and I have to watch it cause it will fill my back pack leaf blower small tank really quick.

    I use a fuel line for a boat with the pump on it. No more holding the can and trying to make the valve work and no more sore back!

    Being in the lawn care business we found these spouts that actually have a vent tube in the spout itself. They do a pretty good job I’ll look on monday and see what the manufacture name is, and pass it along.

    I saw where Walmart has replacement spouts and vents like the old cans. Just drill a hole for the vent and put the vent in
