    I can't believe you guys haven't heard of No Spill cans. Go to http://www.nospill.com and check them out. I've been using these for several years. The customer service is great. There were a few longevity issues with some of the past nozzles and every time I called No Spill they mailed me new nozzles for free. I use the 2.5 & 5 gallon cans. The best deal I found on the cans was from Horizon Irrigation. Honda also distributes the cans.

    About a hr north of Wichita

    No.
    Now I really better get them to bring some back. I am pretty sure they still have some but they may have sold out.

    The new cans have changed a little but here are some older pictures of the 2.5 & 5 gallon cans. The new pictures are on the prior link I included. The push button 2.5 gallon can is great for filling small equipment that is easy to over fill. I think you'll find all other CARB cans suck compared to the No Spill cans.

    Jason, that must be a JD issue, my Scag doesn't have that problem.

    Plantscape, I have 2 of those. They work GREAT for filling the handhelds. The downside, they don't have vents and will balloon up in the hot summer sun. I made a vent out of a metal valve stem from a custom automotive wheel.

    I think because of CARB rules no cans have vents anymore. It's important to always push the button in prior to tilting the can in warm weather to relieve pressure. I have forgotten to do this on more then one occasion and the can burped out some fuel.

    personally i don't mind the safety nozzles you find at lowes or crap depot.

    i'd rather use those than the one's pictured from plant solution.

    personal preference though. the only thing i don't like is they don't vent.

    maybe its me, but I have broken 2 spouts on the new cans and I only bought them in Sept so I going for the push buttons.
     
  9. go to page 3 post number 24, I mentioned it already. They marketed to Ca first since c.a.r.b. is a CA thing.


    The reason Honda distributes is they bought the company.
