    That's going in the playbook.

    Great idea.

    Thanks! That's pretty slick. I HATE those CARB cans. They're supposed to stop fumes from escaping but you end up spilling gas all over everything. Makes about as much sense as most government regulations.



    Some of the cans I've got had a different spout than he did. They have a 2 part spout with a sliding valve inside. They are harder to disable and have a sealed spout when you're done. On those I've had to resort to the EZ Pour kit. They work well but are a little expensive....especially online. Tractor Supply stocks them around here.

    you're welcome...3 of the 4 cans i have are like the video but i do have one of those slide spout cans as well that i think i may just try to modify or just toss the nozzle and go with one of those kits you mentioned...i despise these new gas cans

    I'd already done the handle-valve modification on one of my cans.. but man, I hadn't thought of the valve stem trick. +1 to this fellow, he's got his full-time thinking cap on.

    Great idea!



    (Why do I think that a felony, or at least a misdemeanor, was committed making that video?)
