Modern gas cans SUCK! With all the safety and weird locks and stuff it is so hard to actually use one that I often wonder whether they actually result in more spills and more danger for the user than something simple. But I don’t make the rules. Instead, I try my best to never use a modern gas can with those features, and instead try to stick with race fuel type of jugs for any of my fuel needs. But what is the best gas can out there? This Project Farm video hopes to answer that.
13 Fuel Cans: Wavian, Justrite, Surecan, Eagle, Stark, Midwest military style, VP Racing, No Spill, Scepter Military Style, Midwest, Briggs & Stratton, Garage Boss and Scepter. All gas cans tested for flow rate, leaks & spills during use, spout functionality with various fuel tank styles, tip over angle, and impact durability. Metal jerry cans tested for corrosion resistance. I purchased all of the gas cans to ensure unbiased testing.
It’s not the can, it’s the spout. I’d like to find the stupid “mfer’s” who couldn’t pour gas without burning his/her dumb ass.
Went to use a new can the other day . Even with two good hands I couldn’t get anything out of it . I wish a handicap coalition would sue who ever mandated those new spouts . I had to take of the spout and pour it into the mower without it .
