I use Blitz. They are tough containers. They are a few years old. Some of the newer ones have a pain in the @ss spout on them though.

I pick up any of the old cans I can get my hands on at garage sales and ones that fly out of the back of trucks and trailers.

You can thank the EPA for the new anti fume spout. The environmentalists thin that by having these spouts we are going to save the planet. I look at garage sales and try to find the old style cans.

I end up spilling gas because of the new spouts. The gov. can mess everything up

Are these the blitz cans you mean? I hadn't tried them yet but they gotta be way better than the 5 gallon can with no spout.

Thats like a 2nd LT in the Marine Corps saying "follow me", or a Major saying "I've got an idea...."

I use two five gallon cans with spouts like steve showed, except I disabled the store/pour mechanism.

I have did the same. I really hate these spouts. I found them to leak from the cap area too. I spilled more gas with them then without. Go figure!

I love those big metal cans but jeeze the pouring mechanism on so many of them is terrible.
