Doesn't sound like a good idea to me. In the back of a pickup truck it would be ok. In a motorhome, not so much.

I see Amazon Ratings at 72% 5-Star & 16% 4-Star. That's really good.



However, there is ALWAYS somebody unhappy with the best products in the world. Read the Google Maps reviews of your favorite restaurant. Odds are that a few reviewers will assert that it's the most horrible place on the entire planet to eat. They will knock the food, staff and ambiance--while others are saying they are all wonderful. That's the nature of on-line reviews.


Tell me how do you get the fuel in my truck thatís on the side. That can works great for generators and lawnmowers, anything that you can pour straight in but I could not use it without a funnel

I also carry 2 X 5 gal cans and I have a tool box in the bed of the truck. So I just set the cans on top of the tool box and use a siphon hose (Harbor Freight) to add the diesel to the truck tank. We use the "Gas Buddy" app on the phone to see where best fuel prices are (especially if we are close to next chosen campground).

A "flexible spout extension" is available: https://www.amazon.com/No-Spill-206-...dp/B000W9LRQK/

or

Any piece of hose or tubing of the same size will work well.

Isnít that defeating the purpose of the can? I can take a Obama can and do that.

You clearly dislike the new gas cans and evidently Obama also, and I'm sure nothing I can say is going to make you stop calling the CARB Compliant fuel containers "Obama cans"... but for the record, the CARB Compliant fuel container rules went into effect 19 days before Obama was inaugurated into office.




I like the No-Spill brand containers a lot (not all "no spill" cans are created equal). My only complaint about them is that I wish they were made from a little thicker plastic so they didn't do a Pufferfish impression every time they warm up.

To answer this question, I am going to quote what FFred shared earlier. "Simply putting he copper end in a tank and moving it up and down will pump fuel (or any liquid) to flow where it can siphon 5 gal in a few min."



I have personally used this method several times to transfer fuel from a 5 gallon container into my Jetta. You will need to figure out how to hold the container higher than the truck's fuel cap to support the siphon.

That kinda defeats the purpose about getting diesel on your hands. I guarantee you will get diesel on your hands unless you wear gloves. I was just commenting about the fact that you couldnít use the cans to fill up the truck with the fuel cap on the side. I have siphoned gas out of containers when I was younger. I think some government agencies has out lived there usefulness, the EPA in one among many.

Agreed! Proposing the EPA is the worst things Nixon ever did.
