Had to see what the improved version that John had found was. I saw him use the first one mentioned the other day and was impressed with the speed it pumped at. I figured they would be just a dribble. Once I clicked on the link I was intrigued by the buzzer. The best part was in the description.

:D :D

I was in Wal-mart the other day and they had the gas cans with with the old style spouts. I bought two of them. I've spilled more gas and diesel with the new ones than I think I've put in the tanks.

My most recent post about Blitz is their response to my inquiry about whether any of their other spouts will fit onto the cans originally equipped with the "Enviro-Flo" assembly. The one I have soon became balky about moving the automatic locking lever from "Store" to "Pour" and one assumes that it will break soon. My question concerned whether the "Hand-E Flo" spout would fit my can.
If my question is answered, the answer will have to come from other quarters and finding one of the spouts is now more of a problem.

I have put the Blitz spout on several of my older small gas cans. It will fit most of them. I do have a tendency to use my pliers to remove the little store/pour lever on the Blitz spouts. It does create a problem wen filling real small cans in having to pull it again and again when trickling the gas in.

Thank you for that link. I do need a couple of those spouts. The price is steep. The listing calls them "rubber", but it is more likely that they are molded from a plastisol, a form of vinyl.

From past experience, those Eagle spouts will only work on Eagle metal cans, so be sure before you order.

Agreed. I think that I have three of those cans needing spouts. Those spouts vibrate if the can is in the truck and they then break off right at the metal cap. Use something else for the cans that are kept in the truck. Keeping them out of sunlight is also a good idea.

Probably some government agency will soon order that those spouts cannot be sold since the cans do not meet latest specifications. Which article of the Constitution covers gas cans?

To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

(OK Jim, you had to know somebody would look it up and check to see you weren't making it up!)

So If I buy a gas can made in MO (or Bus Driver buys one made in NC) and not by an Indian Tribe; congress shouldn't be involved, right?. :D :lol:

If you could find somebody that makes cans in MO with no plans to sell them in any other state, they might be willing to ignore congress. However, I probably did quote the wrong clause. The cans are probably regulated by the EPA under the Clean Air Act. I think that act is covered by clause 1 (general welfare) of the same article/section
"The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;"

So a cheapo filler neck costs half what a 'No Spill' brand container costs. Not a bargain any way you look at it. Also consider that older materials don't play well with ethanol, so be careful.

I can tell you that the odds of me not getting ALL the fuel in a mower tank is pretty high and I do pay attention, it just seems to happen. That is never a problem with the No Spill one. The best part is that it is the easiest and most convenient fuel container I have ever used. No spilled fuel, no poking around for that pesky little disc (that helps keep water vapors out of your ethanol), no crazy buttons to press while you pull the lever. It's ingenious and it works.

If I want to get frustrated, I can try to get 5 gallons of biodiesel in my truck with that dang yeller CARB 5 gallon container without getting any on the paint.... it doesn't happen....EVER.

Even 'jerry' cans are required to CARB/EPA compliant these days. One advantage of those rules is it limits evaporation and also keeps moist air out.

Its my understanding that if you live in Virginia, outside the limits of what is considered Northern Va . You can still sell and use the old style cans and spouts legally if you can find them. I still have my old ones laying around. I imagine that the bureaucrats that wrote these regulations never had to lift a can full of fuel and place it into a piece of machinery .
