    I bought one of these and it sits perfectly on the loader bracket. All I have to do is push the button. The flow is pretty good on these also.

    I thought it was just me. Have spilled more gasoline with the spill proof spouts than I ever did with the previous ones. I also have two of the old style ( pre-government conrtol ) 6 gallon diesel plastic cans. I have been using the funnel technique and that works pretty well. Still, holding them even over the funnel is awkward. I have a siphon but have not tried it yet. Somewhere on TBN I read that a board placed across the FEL arms to set the can on and a siphon stops you from holding the can up for so long. That might work for my kubota with the fill hole right in the center of the hood.

    $100 for a offroad tank with a hand pump and $10 for a auto-shutoff nozzle took care of that problem for us.

    Get one of these from EZ-Pour. Great little kit with spout and a plastic vent plug. Just drill a hole and snap it in. Then replace the spout with one like what you were used to. ~$10 each.

    Myself, I got a couple of the hi-flows so I didn't have to stand around for 5 mins with it at chest level to pour 5gals into my bota.

    Those are tremendous cans!
    Wish I had a nice pair of those waiting for me in my barn right now.

    No-Spill Jill has nice Sweater-Bumpers. I may have to look into getting a couple of those cans.

    Put the fuel can in the loader bucket. Run tubing from the fuel can to the tractor fuel tank. Raise the loader bucket slightly higher than the tractor filler hole. Tip the fuel can on it's side to poor. Fuel runs into the tank with no lifting, no holding, no spilling or extra effort.
    If you already have a fuel can, the only extra cost is a couple dollars for tubing and maybe a hose clamp.
