Those Blitz cans were crap anyway. The seal never worked, so you couldn’t pour gas without it leaking all over the place, and you would also lose plenty of gas to evaporation if you stored it for any length of time. Also, the design itself was poor, since you could not empty all of the gas out of the can when the nozzle was attached. You’d always be left with a bit of gas sloshing around that couldn’t get to the nozzle.

If I was serious about prepping, I’d be investing in military surplus jerry cans or something like that.

Agreed. I have been replacing mine with metal. Looks like there is a new aftermarket for the plastic ones. Can use them for barter or cash.

You Know about Siphon Hoses?

Any body ?

They Work Very well,empty the Jerry Can Without pulling the can out.

Those New Jiggler type Siphon are worth every penny.
