How to make a fuel can user friendly.

Saw this on another site. I've done 6 of mine.

Thanks for the video, I'm in complete agreement with this guy's outlook.

Google BLITZ and see why they went bankrupt.

Because people got burnt pouring gas on fires, they were sued and regulated out of business

I didn't know Blitz was forced out of business.

"In the one case Blitz lost, in 2010, a Utah jury awarded more than $4 million to the father of a 2-year-old girl killed when a Blitz can exploded after the father, David Calder, tried to start a fire in a wood-burning stove in his trailer home by pouring gasoline on the flame."

The dumbing down effect is real and dangerous.

I have one of these cans and fixed it just as the video suggested, except I didn't put the vent in. Worked great until the the main valve went bad.

Thanks for sharing the video.
A man who knows his gas cans!
Good idea and good true view of things.

I usually take the whole cap contraption off and pour through a big funnel and it gurgles and splashes out because there is no vent, but this is a much better idea.

I bought six similar nozzles on ebay. The stupid nanny cans with the flimsy "safety" valve were more dangerous than the old "jerry" cans, I would end up spilling fuel or dropping the whole can trying to use it. There's several videos on how to make the new improved gas cans usable. I buy them at yard sales whenever I see them for $2-$3 and fix them.

I was about to start looking for new fuel cans. 15 minutes to fill 5 gallons in the mower was getting real old.
Ordered some hi flow from EZpour. Looks like the answer to my problems.

Thanks,

I like the vent idea. I think the part with the button he cut off is to lock it so when it falls over on the handle, gas can't come pouring out. I also wonder what an insurance company would say if you had a fire and they found the gas can had been modified.
