Thread: Gas cans
06-15-2005, 12:25 PM #1
I was looking for a gas can that I could use for filling my ski at the lake. The ones I had seen had plastic fill tubes that were not long enough, and there was a "cheapness" factor about them.
I found this on on the Web. It has a metal fill tube that is plenty long, and a way of stopping the fuel flow when you want to, also slowing down the flow as well.
A bit spendy but I think they will serve my needs pretty well. About $55 a piece. Great safety features on the cans as well.
Got tired of spilling gas all over my ski as it reached the top of the tank.
You can file this under your "who gives a rats ass" folder in your filing cabinet.

Holy cow that's expensive!! I have about 15 $4.00 walmart 5 gallon plastic jugs. They work well, i never spill, i always pull the basket out and watch the tank as i fill it.

I have to agree with Mike, I used the WalMart ones and the VP fuel ones you can get anywhere for alot less money.

Frank, i really like those where did you get them?

yea the ones Franko uses are cool. I just bought two that are like that just they cant stop or adjust the flow, but its just what i need because with the normal gas cans I end up spilling some. I guess I can't get it steady enough for a normal can, but hey the two I got were $20 each and they hold 5 gallons

Yeah I too bought a few of those from Parker and they are great. If you notice they call them utility or water jugs for legal reasons. Before I had bought the ones that walmart carries and they are nothing but junk. Out of the four that I had bought only one made it through the summer months without breaking on me. Be careful with the tips on those cans as they can break and end up in your fuel tank. Here is another link for "utility" jugs http://www.vpracingfuels.com/vp_07_a...9B580C#utility

Jerry, I got the cans from a local dealer for like $35 per can. My brother in law made the SS racks. The racks are awesome.

I use ones similar to Franko - you can get them from Summit for a very good price. You can then buy an additional hose that has an on/off valve on them (I think I see them in Franko's pictures) to control flow. Franko - did yours include the valve filler necks? If so that's a great price.
