Non spill fuel cans

I think it was on here some time ago (maybe a year or two back) that somebody posted a link to a very neat type of fuel can, maybe 5-10L capacity, which had a nozzle on it and a push-button or trigger system on the handle so it only dispensed fuel when the button/trigger was held in, so you could stick the nozzle into the filler neck and then release the fuel and then stop it before you took the nozzle out. Seem to remember it was quite pricey but looked very good, but I can't find it either on here or with Google.

Does anybody remember this and if so could you point me to the product? It isn't strictly for boating use, the family have bought a fleet of kid's quads for Christmas and I want some fairly idiot proof way of refuelling them to avoid explosions!

I have one of the ones your talking about; it's a 20l version. I can't find the exact model online but here's something similar.

Flo-control, that's the one I was thinking of.

I like the idea of that portable fuel pump though.

Many thanks

I've got one but wouldn't buy another. I found the "fuel pump" part pretty poor and as such just use it as a normal fuel can with a jiggle pipe to transfer the fuel.

Which the big pump or the little yellow can?

Stephen - I found what I was looking for earlier - Flo N' Go - Maxflo no personal experience.

It was the siphon flow pump that seemed to take ages to prime before the siphon would start. By the time I'd created enough air pressure in the can my jiggle pipe would have emptied it. I'm not sure what you mean by yellow can etc. but mines's red.

I have a fuel can I use for the chainsaw, the nozzle seals until you press it against the tank opening and it dispenses the fuel.


Il see if I can find one.

*EDIT* search eBay for anti spill combi can, the one I have is the orange one, the nozzle is a great thing.
