    Anyone ever find the old style gas cans? Not the C.A.R.B compliant ones. The ones that works just fine. Before the government jumped in and had to take control of something else.

    Overseas maybe?

    I haven't seen one in the stores forever. I have gutted the valve necks on the new ones and they work as the old ones did, just doesn't flow as fast. -Jason

    I have 8 of them from our motorcross racing days for the generator. I never thought of using them on the trailer. Is it worth shipping if you want them?

    I have a couple of old ones left that are going to be in need of replacement soon. I will either be finding the old style somewhere or modifying the new ones, b/c the new ones drive me crazy. Thank you EPA for costing me more money and making my job harder.
