    It has a vent cap on it. Without the house it would spill everywhere. Tried it with weed killer one time. I fill up mowers, truck, and cans twice a month. Wish I had the fueling station like super lawn trucks. Twice a month is good with me.

    Don't get the gas cans from Walmart. The top pieces that have the plastic spring broke for me within 2 weeks. I'm not going out and buying new gas cans yet. So I just unscrew the whole cap when I want to put gas in something, and I bought a little funnel. It's slower, but it works for now.

    This is all you need! $10, and it makes the gas can work they way they USED too.

    Please don't refer to the constitution if you don't know or understand it. You should check into "delegation of powers." These are laws, administrative laws. They carry the same weight and authority as the "statutory laws" that you seem to think are the only valid laws. This has been before the Supreme Court many times, starting as early as 1825 I think. In short, congress has the right to delegate most powers it has a legal right to exercise under the constitution. No matter how you, or anyone else, feels about it these laws are legit. If you don't believe me, try not paying your taxes and see what the IRS (an administrative agency itself) does to you, then try telling them about your interpretation of the constitution and let us know how that works out for you.

    All that said, the CARB cans are a joke, and should be referred to as leak-o-matic-2009's. But, that doesn't change the fact that the law that mandates them is legitimate, enforceable, and constitutional.

    They said "So long as Congress 'shall lay down by legislative act an intelligible principle to which the person or body authorized to [exercise the delegated authority] is directed to conform, such legislative action is not a forbidden delegation of legislative power."

    Aka, the constitution says we cant do it, but we are gonna do it anyway. fact is, these "laws"are written individuals without legislative voting. They are also outside of the 5 topics the federal government sare en allowed to create law about.

    And yes, they suck. And are dangerous. The men writing these laws know nothing about gas cans. The gas still evaporates. Only now it's dangerously put under pressure

    I'm glad you posted the link and that I looked.

    The last time I went to the site they would not sell to PA residents - now they do.

    I'm mostly happy with my No-Spill cans, but I do have a handful of old cans around that are "OK" for home use, but not repeated use on the job due to the stupid spouts, or old, broken ones. Now I can retrofit a few and have a few more usable cans.

    Do your tractor supply stores not sell them ?
