The can is translucent enough that you can peek through the opening and see the mark on the outside of the can. If the mark is hard to see put your finger on the mark and it will really stand out.
fill my mix gas first, use the pumps read out to know when i'm at 2 gal. then fill my 5 gal next which is easy to see when its full

I got my 2.5 gallon No-Spill can from Amazon for $19 shipped. It's made from very thick plastic. It's much better than even the pre-CARB cans that I used to pine for.

I like to use NATO Jerry cans. They are tough as hell, and pour as fast as lightning. They run about $40 for a 20L.

I have to say the flow rate on these no spill cans is impressive.

I think it would be hard to use a No Spill and then go back to any other can you used in the past. For small equipment the push button action spout is great for quick fills and less spills. I will say it is good to keep an extra spout or two on hand. I think I have about 11 No Spill cans.

I keep about six extra 5 gallons cans on hand for surplus fuel and then my trailer carries another 20 gallons worth of mix and straight gas in 2.5 & 5 gallon cans. I only like to go buy fuel once every week or week and a half.

This is what I like. Pricey, but top quality and pour fast. I would buy this before I spent $40 on an old style can

I don't know but I ordered one because they're normally well north of $100, just the spouts sell for like $20 on up.
The other reason I picked that one is because the seller's feedback is at 99.6% and that's not bad for Ebay.
