  • Gas
  • how do you all fill your tractors with gas? do you have some type of transfer tank or do you use gas cans? i had to go fill a half dozen gas cans the other day and they all leak when trying to pour them out. going to consider another option if one is out there.

  • It isn't much fun trying to heft a 5 gal gas can over a front loader frame. I use a long funnel and dried out water jugs to pour in a gallon at a time. I usually end up spilling some. Anybody have a better way?

  • I have a funnel that has about a 3 foot hose on it. I have a hook on the funnel that I attach to the highest point on the loader frame and then put the hose in the tank.. Works for me..

  • Several 5 gallon plastic cans with various spouts. Then only put a few gallons in each can. The solid spouts work better than the flex type. I will not buy anymore with the locking safety spout.

  • I found out you can remove the "guts" from that safety spout. Not a bad spout after that!

  • Because of old age and cancer problems I don't have the strength I had five years ago.
    So I have to find easier ways to do things. I bought the pumper on Amizon. It is battery powered
    and works great. It has a sensor in the nozzle that shuts the pump off when the tank is full.
    The battery's last quite a long while.
    I wheel it around on a old wheel chair I bought at a garage sale for $5. A handy item to have in the shop.

  • Re: Gas
  • I got me a big a$$ red funnel with a strainer and just pour gas straight from the gas can, most of mine are plastic. I usually put in 5 gallons at a time at the most. Lately I bought several one gallon cans so I can fill one gallon at a time and easy to handle. I also have a Mr. FUEL funnel that will filter out any crud or moisture from a questionable sourse of gas.

  • 5 or 6 gallon plastic cans from back when, but I found some long flexible spouts on Amazon that make it much easier to get everything in the tank & faster. The spout sets come with several cap adapters to fit my old Wedco, Rubbermade, & Chilton cans.

  • Re: Gas
  • 6 gallon red plastic gas cans filled about 4.5 gallons and I use a locking funnel. Less weight to lift and no spill when starting to pour. Once it is into the funnel I can rest the can in the funnel and just steady it until it is empty.

  • I've got several old style 5 gallon gas cans here that I use regularly year round. Their spouts fit securely and don't leak. I find that filling them with just 4-1/2 gallons creates a lot less problems.
