    since 2 of the 3 blitz cans i have, have those spouts i usually have to buy a new set of spouts every year or year and half.

    the plastic always cracks somewhere. but i'm willing to do it because i don't like the push button style.

    I noticed that too. I commented on the no spill cans after your post. I will say it again though, they are the best of what we have available. I think I have tried just about every new style can and that one is hands down the best.

    Pretty much correct.

    It was designed to trap air at the top of the tank leaving a space for the gas to expand without overflowing, and also so that you don't overfill the tank and spill it on the ground(sob, sniff, blah blah).

    I just use the HO grade cans from Lowe's or home-depot
    wichever store is cheaper
    but the disadvantage is that I have had to buy 2 5 gallon cans because they keep getting larger than normal so they eventually were to blow up but I prevented that from happening by continiously buying new gas cans
    but for the new mowing season I am on the hunt for better gas cans!
    even if they are $50.00 bucks:hammerhead:

    The only good cans now are the metal safety cans. The only problem with them is the funnels break. They pour fast!
