180990541812 41 bucks plus 10 shipping right now! I must be seriously out of touch with reality, a couple years ago Target had a sale on these cans, I bought 40 for 5 bucks each, too bad I've been using them. LOL!


Still looking for that Union 76 ball
And I collect big old porcelain neon signs

What's the deal is.... Have you tried buying a new gas can in the store? They all have a new design that does'nt have the little yellow vent on the end of the can, but rather a vent built into the pour nozzle with a "Mickey Mouse" ring you need to twist and push the entire nozzle down to get the can to vent. Then you need to twist,push and hold nozzle piece pushed in as you pour. Try doing all that and direct the gas flow into the little hole in a car gas tank!
They are suppose to reduce the number of people that get burned each year from doing stupid ***** with gasoline....
Another fine example of the government looking out for us all! But on the upside they created a new "Gasoline Collectable" haha

And on a closing note- Sorry Mickey I kind of thru you under the bus.... Mickey Mouse had nothing to do with the design of this.lol

I was wondering the same. While searching for gas pump nozzles on e-Bay, I've had listing come up for the filler spouts for these gas cans and was surprised by what they were selling for.

You'd have more Fun being named Richard ie: Dick.
I some times wonder what Mike is a Nickname for? But then I'd probably prefer a user name on web sites! LOL
