Looking for an online source for the old type K-1 cans..The ones with a

Shop around- prices go from $10-30 for essentially the same thing.
No dripping, no lifting. Batteries in mine are 2 yrs old- and hang in

Being a scientist, I naturally wanted to see how those cans worked.
I took the spout apart to it's component parts.
In re-assembling it, some parts would not re-assemble, but I did find
that the spout worked better.
As of 1/1/09, there is a $500 fine *per container* for anyone selling
non CARB compliant fuel containers. Stores may sell existing stocks
of pre 2009 containers without penalty, so if you want to replace any
containers, you better do so soon. It's hell when the whole USA has
to follow screwed up California rules.
