How to keep gas from getting on your paint.

I have an easy way to keep gas from getting all over your nice paint when you pour it in. Drive down to the gas station.

Not much fun in the funnel but much safer than driving a cub 6 miles on a narrow hilly 2 lane road with no shoulders. :x

My solution is to use one of these. Ues 2 D celss that last 3 or 4 years and empties 5 gallon can in about 4 to 5 minutes. I normally rest the gas can on the rear rockshaft lift rod. Also real handy if you want to empty the gas tnak to remove it. pumps down to about 1/4 inch depth

If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Let's see. 6 miles round trip to the gas station, another 10 minutes to pay the bill. Cost of the gasoline driving to and from the gas station. Doesn't work out for me.

I use a 5 gallon container with flexible hose. If I spill some gas on my tractor - - so what. I haven't painted the tractor and have no intention of doing so - - it's a working tractor, not a trailer queen.

Edit: I go to local tractor shows. Tractors have been washed, no paint scratches, look better than new. Not my tractors. Last time my standard Cub was washed was 15 or 16 years ago, the day I brought it home. Steam and pressure sprayed the tractor while it was still on the trailer.
I have an excuse. CRS.

WHERE CAN I GET ONE OF THOSE PUMPS????
doesn't sound any faster than a siphon, but my arm would get tired of holding a 5 gallon can high enough. The real trouble of gas spillage is the fault of the EPA and their insistence on an unusable spout. If you have an old can and spout take care of it.
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

You guys are thinking through this too hard. If you don't want to get gas on your paint, just replace the paint with rust! You'll never have discolored paint again. :{_}:

I have several of those 3.5 gas cans with the safety nozzle that has to slide back on the side of the fill spout so the gas will run...(Walmart used to carry them) I've had them for 5 years of so and they still work although they're made of plastic...3.5 gallons is light enough to throw up and catch the lip for the safety on the tank lid and make you feel like you're in a Nascar pit stop...5 gallons is a tad heavy for my old bones..Course you can put 3.5 gallons in a 5 gallon can...Dave
