One about ten times that size. :lol:

Actually, the aircraft had closed port refueling. Never spilled a drop, unless someone did something stupid.

I like to time things so that when I go out to the farm or when I'M coming back, I stop at the gas station in town and fill up. My paint has hardener in it so I don't have to worry about damage, other than just making a mess if I spill anything. I do have a couple of those @#(@# plastic cans that you need a degree in engineering from MIT to figure out to operate the spout. Even if you just take the spout off and pour into a funnel you just about have to completely invert the can over the funnel to keep it from dribbling all over everything.

;;.....Jeeez, The one I have you just invert and no gas comes out till you put the gas can in the tank and the outside slide mechanism is pushed back by the weight of the filled gas can as it comes in contact with the neck of the cubs gas tank...I haven't been able to find any new ones of that design though...Also if I went to town to fill up, I'd have to fill up again when I got back home anyhow :lol: :lol: :lol: ..I do agree that some of the cans are more dangerous trying to operate the safety mechanism than if you had a used the old 5 gallon oil cans washed out...I'd be willing to bet that the designers never used a gas can in the field to begin with...Btw...Have you seen the new Jumper cables from NAPA that have plastic clips you operate to hold the metal jumper ends in place on the cables...Just picked up a set without looking at the cables first..They're lovely to operate..I will take them back...!!!!!....Have a great Easter.....Dave

That's the one. I just take the whole @#(@ cap/spout off and pour into a funnel.

An outfit like this would be very tempting:

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.

I didn't know the meaning of hills till I came by you :surrender:
Makes me appreciate my nice flat ground up hear.


I just drive down to the gas station course I drive my cub all over town gas, shopping, work I love my cub
