In the states we can only get the ones with the new non-spill spouts that spill fuel everywhere.

Re: New vented jerry cans

I've had great results with these - diesel and gas jerry cans ... Three years use with no spills or leaks - store on deck. Easy to control fueling.

I use these, too. 3 years so far. I've purchased small ones as gifts for friends who have also had good experiences with them.

Holding the button down to dispense five gallons of fuel could be difficult.

I've done it for years now. Not an issue at all... Press the button once while upright to release / vent any pressure, put spout in fuel fill, press button. They don't leak and pour quickly without any splashing. As easy as it gets - works for me cause I hate fuel on my deck and I'm an old guy! Just my 2 cents...

Re: New vented jerry cans

Those California spouts are a stupid annoying contraption. We replaced ours wirh simple venting spouts.

Now we will spill nothing. Those stupid spring loaded spouts spit fuel everywhere.

Re: New vented jerry cans

Everyone in California also thinks the CARB spouts are stupid.

Thanks, I've been so turned off by the CARB spouts that I automatically assume anything new in this area is worse. But I'll take a closer look at the NoSpill.
