Thread: which gas cans???

  1. which gas cans???

    I keep my boat on a hydrohoist and fill at my private slip. I prefer not to fill at the marina. What are the best/fastest options for fueling? I am currently using old 5gal cans....they take about 5min to drain each tank

    I continue to use the 5 gallon cans (scepter brand), but I added a vent hole in the handle to increase the flow out of it. The newer cans have the safety feature where you depress a button to allow for fuel flow. I actually get rid of that safety and attach clear tubing from lowes. The drop N Fill looks interesting but $90 is a weekend of gas

    ^^ I picked up a couple of these for the detail guys here at the shop and they seem to work good as well and eliminated spillage

    I use something similar to Gravity siphon. I have seen 3/4" ID tubing that will make emptying 5 gallons short work.

    The 5 gallon tall cans are the best my opinion. They have 2 packs at Costco for super cheap. Get a jiggy siphon hose and you can do two at once.

    5 gallon gas cans, go buy clear tubing (1 1/4" I believe). Put one end in the boat filler and on end in the gas tank and squeeze it the tank to start siphon. Works like a charm.

    If you don't want to squeeze the can, those gravity siphon (suggested by h20-ski) work well, just make sure to get a big diameter one for enough flow. Northern Tool has 1" diameter ones for $20.

    This thing is legit. We have one and it is as advertised. Actually saw the prototype when Cobe Mikacich was developing it at Freedom Wake Park in Orlando and asked what it was. As soon as they came out we got it.

    I've been buying the simple red gas cans and replacing the nozzle and adding a vent to them with the amazon kit. Works pretty well and drains a lot faster.

    5 gallon cans and the jiggler siphon from Harbor Freight. It will drain a 5 gallon can in about 90 seconds. It will drain it as fast at the gas pump will fill the can up.
