    This one is not hard to handle, I pick it up with the forks, put it in the pick-up, fill it with off road diesel.

    But it hurts to pay for it, $300 last time.

    I removed the little safety lever on my fuel spouts too. Pushing on that thing, really hurts when the fingers are cold.
    I love it when someone sidesteps political correctness with a little humor. The nosepicking bit caused me to reread that reply twice. In the future I'll remember that trick if I really want to get someone's attention.

    I took a big sheet metal screw and run it into the can to make a vent hole. After running it in and out several times, I can do it with my fingers and the vent allows the can to empty two or three times faster. The screw will stay in the hole better than a golf tee or stick.

    I hang mine from a rope inside the barn and place the tractor under it. Just tilt and pour.

    You'd think, but read the warning label, I think the first warning may be to release the pressure in the can prior to filling your equipment. To me this totally defeats the purpose of this hope to suck the gases back in as you really don't want to have the can spurt out fuel due to all the pressure of the gas expanding within the can.

    I do wish California had been really smart and passed the prop requiring labels on all GMO goods, last fall. That would have been one worth getting on the books. Big money and corporations won that one too. *sigh*
    I agree...too many people decided to create a city in a valley where the wind won't blow through. For some reason people think that just because its a city it doesn't abide by the same rules of nature. In a car people realize that if there's a smog problem, the wife will tell you to roll a window down. The same philosophy needs to be understood by cities.

    come to think of it, i do have a couple cans w/ regular spouts too, guess i can try the old caps on the new cans.
    I've got some of the ezpour spouts and they work on everything I have. Go to their site, they have pics of all the cans they work with.

    You want smog, try the Valley of the Sun where Phoenix is located. On a few occasions I flew into/out of there and the only thing you could see were a couple of the dog crap piles (isolated mountains) that dot the eastern end of the valley popping their tops through the smog layer. And if a haboob is blowing in, all bets of seeing anything are off.

    Paraphrasing Douglas Adams - So long and thanks for all the bacon.
