    Here is one of my fuel cans. I have several and use them for everything from the race car to the mowers. Manufactured by scribner plastic. I can dump 5 gallons in around a minute.

    Thats great except for this disclaimer:

    Not for sale in states which require spill proof containers. I'm located in NJ - so I know they are prohibited from even shipping to my state. I cannot stand these new spillproof containers, especially for the 2 cycle stuff... you spill more trying to hold the equipment, the can & properly activate those stupid spouts.... not to mention how swelled up the cans get when it gets hot & gasses expand.

    They will ship it to NJ. Just tell them that you race and its a water jug. Thats why its sold as a utility jug and not a fuel jug.

    I hate those cans also....I drilled a little hole in mine to vent...I am buying up as many of the old ones that I can find.

    Those are pretty cool. they sell some like that here at our Autozones. They are round and look more like the NASCAR cans, though.

    What I like is that I get the white ones and I can see through them to see how much fuel is in it, or if I'm filling up a pre mix can I can see how much I have dumped.

    I'm a fan of the push button "no spill" cans you can get online. they are perfect for 2-cycle equipment, not so much for my 14 gallon tank on my everride.
