My wife has made it clear that although she doesn't mind operating the snowblower when I'm at work, she HATES the 1 gallon plastic gas can I have. Frankly, I can't blame her, 'cause it seems to be built by the folks that invented the dribble glass.
The one I have is by Wedco, and you have to take the nozzle off, and remove and then re-install a plug to seal it every time you use it. When you remove the plug and lock the spout back on with the plastic nut, it never seals well unless you REALLY crank on it. End result is gas leaking all over & a ticked off spouse. It has no gasket to seal the spout to the can or the cap. The plug has a thin O-ring, and I've never been convinced it actually sealed against anything either.
I'd much prefer a can with a cap on the nozzle so that you dont have to go through hoops every time you use it. If it filled through a second opening, that might be even better.
So, do the very knowledgeable folks here have a favorite type/brand of can? It may be that Wedco has improved their design by now, because they still seem to be one of the big brands. Consumer Reports thinks their "no-spill" design was better than ones from Blitz, which seems to be another top brand. There also see s to be some funny business about what state certain cans are legal for. I live in Massacuhusetts, which is probably not a good thing...
Thanks for any suggestions.
