Don't know about the yellow cans, but you can still get the red cans in ID. Saw two on the shelf a few days ago. You could paint/powder coat one yellow.

ID is where the potatoes come from. And diesel cans of course. Personally I will never have another metal fuel can.

Yep, ID as in Idaho. Guess they don't care for CARBish regulations. Here in WA, can't find anything but the new fangled CARB compliant cans, metal or plastic.

Thank God, the government came in and saved us from minors opening gas/fuel cans.

Atlantic British has a few of the Green ones left

Carb Compliant or Old School Wedco Jerry Cans, which one works better?

Everyone seemed to get bent out of shape when they changed the filler cap on the jerry cans to be CARB compliant. I have two of the old, traditional style but honestly I don't think they work that well. They are fidgety and you can easily bend the contrived hinge mechanism if you don't pay attention.

My question is. Which one works better? New or old? Which one is easier to fill, less spill, easier to open/close, etc? Anti-government paranoia aside, are these new ones worse or better than the old ones? I can't say I'm fan of the old lid design and I'm considering ditching my old ones to get 4 new ones but only if is an improvement. If someone out there has owned and used both I would appreciate your honest opinion in regard the functional difference. Thanks.
