I've bought two no spill tanks since this post began... one 5 gal for gas and (a few months later) a one 1 gallon can for gas/oil mix. After almost a year of use I give them a wholehearted recommendation.

One of the local stores had the No Spill cans when they first came out and I bought a small 1 1/2 gallon one for use with 2 cycle mix. I have had it for 7 or 8 years and am happy with it for its use, but no one locally stocks them now. I have used the Blitz cans and spouts for the small cans , but they are out of business now, and the new spouts you push in are a real pain to use with items such as Weedeaters. You need one hand to hold the weedeater from moving, one to hold the angle of the can right, and a 3rd hand to push it down to open the spout.

Yep, EJP.... I was using the Wedco last weekend when I was brushcutting and nozzle broke at a fold. I can get a nozzle for about $10 but someone forgot to replace the disc so I need more than the nozzle. I won't throw it out, but it will be replace by a No Spill!

Stihl dealers carry them. Amazon has them, shipping is free on orders more than $25. They get $16 for the 1 1/4 gallon one or $19 for the 2 1/2 gallon, why would I replace the spout???
