I bought mine at Lowes, Red for gas or gas mix, yellow for diesel.

I just marked the mix can "MIX". I believe if it's gas mix it's still supposed to be red.
I keep my gas in a 5 gal and my mix in a 2.5 so I don't grab the wrong one.

OH, let's see. Try Lowes, Menards, Home Depot, TrueValue, Farm and Fleet, Farm King, Sears, Your JD Dealer, Your Kubota Dealer, Your eXmark Dealer, Your Scag Dealer, Your Dixie Dealer, Your Bad Boy Dealer, Your Hustler Dealer, and any other mower Dealers. If you can not find a gas can at one of these places, I would try the internet. Type in "Gas Containers" Gas Can's" "Fuel Containers" "Fuel Can's" then click on "Search". If you have not luck there, you are @@@@ out of luck. :hammerhead: :hammerhead: :hammerhead:

Check out the Blitz Fuel Station. I just bought 2 of the 15 gallon tanks and mounted them on my trailer...high and out of the way. I will try and get some pics if you are interested.

someone needs to start making those old rubbermaid kind of gas cans. Make them red and call them water cans for all I care.

I too HATE all the new style gas cans. I sometimes search ebay for the old style cans.

I just bought this 14 Gal Can for my mix. It has a 10 ft hose and I leave it in the trailer and bring the hose out to fill my 2 cycle equip. Here is the link.

No-spill is the BEST can ever made and I love the one I have and will be ordering more for my operation and some for my father and brother.
No-Spill is what is considered a "CARB" tank. It is safe to carrie in your car or truck and it will not leak or vent fumes at all. I picked up my No-spill at the Louie Ville show for half price and love it. The only time i ever spilled gas with this tank is when I did not think it was working and lifted the can off the tank and spilled some. What makes it work so well is the easy push button trigger release and how it know when to stop filling the tank.

they pour fine. You just have to learn a slightly new technique.

Most of the new ones have a split tube so if you tilt it all the way over, no air can cycle. tilt it over less and it will pour just as fast as the old kind.

I've been using the "No Spill" cans for a couple of years. I think that they are a pretty good company because I needed a new cap for one of mine because I overtightened it once too often and it cracked. I emailed the company and asked if they sold replacement caps. To my surprise and delight they immediately shipped me 2 (two) new caps completely free of charge. You don't see that type of customer service very often anymore. It made me a lifetime customer, that's for sure! Another time I had a problem with the pushbutton and they sent me an entire new can for free.
