Fuel cans

8 posts in this topic

 

im sick of splashing petrol around from a cheap can like a chump, and was wondering if there is a decent product out there that suits trials bikes. I know the enduro/mx crowd are pretty well covered in this respect

So, im wondering what everyone else uses, perhaps there's a particularly good fuel can out there?

I don't like the cheapo plastic cans either, so I bought one of these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5L-MILITARY-GREEN-METAL-JERRY-PETROL-CAN-5-Litre-with-Spout-Funnel-Hose/201562079745?_trkparms=aid%3D555019%26algo%3DPL.BANDIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20151016114640%26meid%3Df097c333111243cebd7b48783edadfa1%26pid%3D100507%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26&_trksid=p2045573.c100507.m3226

There are loads of people selling them on ebay. I just picked this one out at random to show you, but I think I paid about £15 for can + spout. It's a proper job.

Stihl (the chainsaw people) make a nice no spill fuel spout that works really well when you press it on top of the tank the fuel flows as soon as you lift off it stops ,might be worth a look?

Using Fuelfriend cans for trial hiking in the mountains they fit very well in the backpack.

From 0,5l to 1,5l also 2l and 5l are available, very good quality.
