I have four 5 gal gas cans and three of them are newer and have the
carb compliant gas cap/nozzles that are worth crap. They've all
broken even though they usually leaked like crazy. I would like to
replace them with the standard course thread screw on caps without any
fancy nozzle gizmo.
However, I cannot seem to find anything. Has anyone else had any
luck finding such a replacement cap? My cans are Briggs & Stratton
and Scepter. All suggestions appreciated.
There's a reason for that--they wouldn't EPA-compliant.
There _is_, however, an outfit (if they've not been run out of bizness)
that is selling the old-style jerry cans for "potable liquid" use.
It's up to you to decide what you actually use them for.
I've not done a recent search to see if they've managed to evade the
rule and are still going or not.
I'm fortunate and have a supply of old 5-gal metal cans that are what
hydraulic and other various oils used on the farm came in. Some are
probably 50 yo at least going thru a multitude of logo changes for the
Co-op over the years I can track the vintage. :) There's a stash of
them I keep to ensure will always have some.
I feel your pain w/ the new stuff...
