So they ( EPA ) took the Lead (tetra-ethel Lead) out of Gasoline.  To help clear the sky of Lead  and Gas Vapors.  At the same time  they decided to out law the ordinary gas can.  Well at least in California.  On the premise that to many gas vapors escape when one fills your car, lawn mower, chain saw, leaf blower, home generator  or whatever.  What they did not bargain for was the guaranteed  spillage from the new safety can.  Have you tried it. Well I did and sure enough spillage.  
 I'm as green as the next guy.  But come on.  I think the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is a bunch of Wacko's.  They sure didn't get the results they wanted.  Every Tom, Dick, and Harry is now buying  new old style cans in Nevada or using other means without safety spouts.  Ever see that pickup truck bombing along the freeway with six large plastic bottles of gas for the two bikes in the back.    

Just my view of things.....     Buck....
