@Raul, just as an FYI and to those who have modified any gas can. If you are stopped for a DOT inspection and the trooper finds a gas can that has been altered from the state of which it was manufactured you will be fined or warned of a violation. The violation differs between states but in MA you can subject to fines ranging from $500-$1000 right off the bat no questions and no defense.
I think you have a great idea and there is nothing more frustrating then the gas cans they make us use today, as we all know; you end up with more gas spilled then gas in the tank. So it begs to ask the question; what do we do as Green Industry Leaders to change the construction of cans to actually work, be safe, not waste money, not take 30 min to fill a tank of five gallons, and last despite the corrosive use of ethanol.
I just don't want to see anybody get nailed by the troopers and they will hammer you three ways to Sunday.

Never heard of this happening in Michigan. In either case, I have an enclosed trailer. Can't see my cans.

If you want these laws to change, stop voting for liberals

Amen. If DOT-man wants to see what's inside of my trailer, he better have a warrant and a damn good reason for wanting to look inside. Otherwise, I forgot the key and I'm on my way home to look for it.

In my opinion, this is the ultimate solution. The front tank is 14 gallons and holds pre-mixed fuel; the rear tank holds 39 gallons of regular gas. Each tank has an electric pump with a gas station-type nozzle. Daily stops at the gas station are a thing of the past. They also solve the problem of how do you fuel mowers on a box truck at a gas station without unloading them from the truck. Now, we just pull up and put diesel in the truck's fuel tank and gas in the two aux tanks. Neat solution.

I have 3 of these on my truck in the Fuel locker. (1) is for regular non-ethanol and (2) Mixed fuel. They are light-weight, easy to control, and you can fill almost to the bream and never spill a drop. https://www.google.com/search?q=2.5+...2F%3B800%3B450
