Re: CARB/EPA approved NATO fuel can

The nozzle is a little on the short side, I think they really could have made it a few inches longer.

It will leak all over the ground - just like all the other CARB compliant ones do - STUPID is as Gubmint does.

Just a bit of a contradiction isn't it?

Re: CARB/EPA approved NATO fuel can

I think this is just a work-around to the dumb CARB rules. Looks like a good way to sell the old style cans, just by including a CARB spout that no one will ever use (or use once before giving up on it). Giving this just a quick look, it seems like the standard NATO jerry can opening which might fit the old style non-CARB spouts, or just use a Super Siphon like I do with all my Scepters.

Re: CARB/EPA approved NATO fuel can

We're lucky since we don't look like rascally offroaders. Some folks have caught tickets for illegal fuel carriers here in CA, but they are the sort of folks who attract attention. I wonder what the LEOs go by; a sticker? I'd just buy the cheapest one possible and slap in this container, which is sold for use other than gasoline in CA, just mark it as "beer" ( ): http://www.amazon.com/Gallon-Military-L ... +can+temco
