    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.

    i may buy a small one. but i still do not think ill get a big one being that i jsut take the spout off poke a hole in the top and pour into my mower, much faster.

    They pour fast?[/QUOTE]

    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.
