Thumbs down Gas cans(plastic)

Where can you buy a good gas jug, been everywhere and all of them have that one spigot that also lets the air in, that is junk. Were that many people getting hurt with the ones with a vent.

Have to us a VP race fuel jug on the lawnmower.

i use a race jug for my lawnmower too. I need to add more stickers to that lawnmower I think.

Are you looking for a cheapy non-race jug with a vent on the opposite side?

I'm confused on what you're even asking. All fuel cans/jugs need a vent since the gasoline fumes will build pressure in a non-vented container.

it was all more of a rant.

I bought some of the new kind because that was all there was, relized it was a mistake the first time I used them. So now I have to use those race jugs for everything.

But do they still sell the regular cans with a vent somewhere.

fumes build pressure, keep the can in the shade then.

Ahh, ok. It's been so long since I've bought a can, I didn't realize they don't have the separate vents on them these days. I have like 4 of those at the house, lol.
