That's excellent! So simple too.

I have a Gott can exactly like the old one he holds up, but mine has a better spout on it.

I haven't seen that. But, those are some good ideas.

I gave up on nozzles for straight gas a long time ago so I don't have to worry about the vents. I just fill the cans half way whether they are 2.5 or 5 and pour. I still use nozzles for the mixed gas though so when I need some new cans maybe I will do some of those mods.

Good tips but I wonder if the gasoline will eat the rubber valve stems.

Love it!!! And I love the idea of storing some gas cans and rotating them out like that too! I absolutely hate those new gas cans, just like that guy and probably anyone else who's ever used them.

Thanks for sharing! I'm going to use that.

Cool! I gave up on buying those gas cans. I now use motocross gas cans.

Great idea!
I did something similar to what they did and it works fine too.

Nice!

I love the 85 year old man with prostate problems reference. LOL! So true!

I feel like these things cause more harm than good. I bet the amount of gas spilled is probably worse than the fumes that could vent to the atmosphere.
