Question Need gas can suggestions

I'm tired of buying crappy gas cans that leak or tip over too easy or the caps blow off and disappear. Anybody have a good experience with a certain brand or style? The crap at hardware stores or WalMart just aren't worth the low cost. I would love to find an intelligent design thats fairly reasonable on price.

Spend the extra money on a safety can then. I've had the same 2, 5 gallon cans since the mid 80's!

easystreet,
I purchased two from the Honda Dealership. They are really good. They sell a 2 1/2 and a 5 gallon size. No-Spill 2 1/2 Gal. size PN# G-07-049, BC-59176 01405, Honda PN# 06176-1405. No-Spill 5 Gal. size PN# G-07-049 (same), BC-59176 01450, Honda PN# 06176-1450. Costs are a little high but with handle is easy to pour.
It looks similar to the Wal-Mart units but is superior. The pour spout is easily unscrewed, has a release button after you tip it to pour and a cap that goes over the spout.

Mquick, are you talking about the Eagle brand metal cans? If so, they look nice. Nobody local has them so would have to order.

JBGill06, I have heard of the VP style can. It appears to me that it would be a pain to pour. A five gallon jug with one top mounted handle and a flimsy rubber tube for pouring. Seems like you would need three hands to use with ease.

Sid, If my Honda dealership had one that would be ideal. They are not far from me. I tried searching off your part number and couldn't get any site to pull that up though. Will have to wait until Tuesday for them to be open again. Do you have a link with photos?

Another forum has recommended the VP style or this one.http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Spill-...pout,4777.html
I like the idea that it doesn't pour until upside down and depressed into tank opening. Seems like a good idea and two have said they like it. It may be the choice if shipping is fast.

Sid, does yours look like this? http://www.acetoolonline.com/Honda-0...06176-1450.htm

If so, I have had similar kinds and they leaked. Not the Honda brand though.
Also, if I remember right it wouldn't let a full flow out. Like a trickle and took forever to fill.

I use 10 & 20 litre Jerry cans and a spout that connects to the opening but upgraded to one of these for safer filling.

easystreet,
That lid that the fellow is demonstrating has been redesigned and was replaced with one without the ratchet mechanism. I have three cans, two 2 1/2 and one 5 gallon unit. You only need to tighten the lids snug, by hand, after filling. The button on the rear of the lid, when pushed, allows plenty of gasoline to flow into your tank without any leakage.
Suggest you call No-Spill and talk to them about that video. 8:30 AM to4:30 PM Kansas time. (913-888-9200)
