Best Gas Can on Amazon

Name Summary Buy on Amazon
No-Spill

The #1 gas can for me. When the new OSHA laws came out on gas can requirements, I went through about 3 cans before I found No-Spill, the closest thing to a good old fashioned gas can with an added safety element. bigge

I am intrigued by this metal gas can, but not enough to spend the $58 dollars to try it. It is nice to handle and easy to pour. I think it works great. bigge

NO-SPILL GAS CAN – THE BEST GAS CAN

I’ve tried 5 gas cans in my short life.  I had two pretty good ones, until we moved and I lost them.  So, I got on Amazon and found the best gas can out there:

HERE ARE THE POSITIVES:

1). First of all, it came from Amazon so it has an awesome return policy and arrived in two days:

2). It has a handle on the back of the can that allows for easy lifting to pour:

3).  It doesn’t spill when you pour gasoline into your lawn mower:

4). Black Gizmo prevents kids from opening it – Very Kid Friendly as far as I can tell.  You have to be able to pour and press the button to get the gasoline out:

5). It pours easily and feels great in your hand:

For the First Time in a long time I didn’t smell of gasoline after mowing my yard and filling up the gasoline tank: – Me

THE WORST GAS CAN

As Far as I can count, I have owned six 5 Gallon Gas Cans in my lifetime.  I owned two before we just moved to our new house.  They were both lost in the move.  I asked my wife:

“How Could we have possibly lost gas cans in the move, but we didn’t lose any of these little ornaments or decorations”

She had no answer, but I can’t imagine she threw them anyway.  Well, no big problem.  I’ll just run down to the Home Depot and pick up whatever they have there.  It is just a gas can anyway.  Anything will work:

I ended up with the Scepter USA 5 Gallon Gas Tank

It was THE ONLY Gas can in the whole store.  So I bought it.  What a PILE of JUNK.

I SHOULD have looked at the Amazon reviews before I bought it:

This spring loaded nozzle is impossible for a dummy like me to use:

I tried everything, including using some pliars to get it to work.  Nothing worked.  It just spilled all over my lawn mower and grass.  Leaks All Over the Place:

POURED THE GAS INTO MY NO-SPILL

I still had about 3 gallons of gasoline in the Scepter gas can when I got my no-spill.  I did the only sensible thing.  Poured the gas from the scepter into the no-spill:

WHAT ARE THE LAWS REGARDING GAS CANS?

Hmmm.  I don’t really know.  Have you tried to read the OSHA requirements for “Flammable Liquid Containers”

HERE IT IS

And here are a few of the requirements out of the many:

Low-pressure tanks and pressure vessels shall be adequately vented to prevent development of pressure or vacuum, as a result of filling or emptying and atmospheric temperature changes, from exceeding the design pressure of the tank or vessel.

So, basically this changed the design of all gas cans.  You can no longer just have a can that stores gas and pours it out.  Nope, you need a fancy dancy container. A lot of companies tried and failed and created some garbage cans not gas cans.

This is the sentence in the OSHA Requirements that changed the world of Gas Cans:

An approved closed container, of not more than 5 gallons capacity, having a flash arresting screen, spring-closing lid and spout cover and so designed that it will safely relieve internal pressure when subjected to fire exposure.

Here is a short Q&A with OSHA that tries to clarify some of the confusion surrounding gas cans.

And this is the world in which we live.  Which I would have kept the gas cans from my youth.
