    What kind of gas cans is everyone using? Do you guys take apart the safety nozzle cause it is a PITA or do you order the replacement nozzles that are not EPA regulated?

    Where do you get the non-regulated replacement nozzles?

    If you do a search on google you can find them on a few websites. That is how I found out they even existed although I have not purchased any yet.

    easy 2 fix - just cut end with clippers or knife
    wrap any foil for the cap - that's it

    pita - oh, yea; common result of using this pos - "with this gov.regulated crp cans i spill more gas than in whole my life"

    Little confused. You use foil instead of a gas cap?

    I've spilled more gas with these spill proof cans, than I've spilled my whole life with the old ones. And what a pain it is to fill string trimmers, chain saws, and blowers with them. Who ever came up with this idea, should be made to work in the Grounds Maintenance business for 5 years....just fueling equipment.

    Interesting.

    No offense but Im NOT going to alter anything that could tip over, spill and cause a massive fire harming myself or others.
