    Has anyone found a gas can that doesn't suck? I feel like the EPA ruined them. I need a new one. 5-6 gallon to keep in my garage.

    What’s wrong with the metal 5 gallon can they sell at Harbor Freight?

    No, but if I needed one, it looked like a good one to have. I would imagine it would have a vent hole, do most not?

    This is what I've done to all my gas cans. Doesn't need to be big. 1mm or smaller drillbit is all you need to keep a nice, gurgle-proof stream out of the nozzle.

    For some reason I thought there were a few split bench options, a 40/20/40, a 60/40 with fold-down center console, and 60/40 without.

    The links @The Black Mamba provided are pretty solid and cover most of the knowledge out there.

    There are a couple of other cover companies you'll find on scAmazon also, which I don't find to be as appealing in appearance as, say, Coverking's stuff, but things like this are definitely an option. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007SX5UL6/

    Coverking does have some nice stuff tho, and the price point isn't what I'd call "outrageous". https://coverking.com/collections/custom-seat-cover

    Oh, and bonus points: If you need a more agressive pour, but don't want to squirt out everywhere when hauling your can to/from the gas station, you can buy rubber plugs on scAmazon and drill out the hole larger, then jame a plug in your hole for travel times.

    Once you drill the hole, do you plug it with anything?

    No, and that's the issue. I think the EPA mandated these changes years ago and it makes them pour horribly slow because they can't breathe.

    That's why some "gas" cans with a vent aren't allowed to advertise as gas cans. Like this one.

    "Note: This is NOT a portable fuel container as described by ASTM, EPA, ARB and other official agencies."

    I don't. It's a very small hole. like 1/16" if I had to guess. I strap the can in the back of the bed. I'm only 1/4 to the service station so I don't go far, and I don't have an issue with spillage or sloshing out. The filler tube has a cap on it, though.

    They used to make them with a little yellow cap/plug thing on the rear. I usually kept mine flipped up. I'll take a pic in a few, not sure if any of the cans I have in the garage have it or not.

    Here you go. Just big enough to plop a nail into the hole during transport.

    And if you want to put in a proper vent, search scamazon for "yellow gas jug vent". They sell in 5 packs. Install like this. At one time, they put these on all new gas cans. Not sure why/when it stopped.

    You’d think they’d put a vent above the filler spout that’s only in use when flipped around to pour.

    Those stupid click spouts suck. I ordered one of these kits to fix my mower gas can. Haven't put it on yet but should be better.

    Wish traffic was that light here on the interstates. Not even Luda would help keep your head on right. I use surface roads during rush hour.

    I run these for all my fuel needs. Just giver a sniff to decide if it's mixed, gasoline, or diesel.

    There are certain sections that never have traffic. They've been making improvements to certain sections to reduce traffic so one path doesn't block every path, which is nice. But generally speaking, you just can't be on the interstate between 7:30-9:30am, and 3:30-6:30pm here lately. Lockdowns changed the traffic patterns, so we're still learning.

    Anyone know offhand when the sequoia added the 150A alternator option? Looks to me like 2003? My google-fu is lacking tonight.

    The local salvage yard has a 2002 and Im hoping that it was a midyear change and there's a small chance I can walk away with a $36 upgrade.
