Got tired of wrestling 5 gallon gas cans to fuel up. I looked into the large 12v fuel stations to put in the trailer, but are very expensive and only hold about 15 gallons. I don't have a toy hauler with fuel station built in. I usually take about 20-25 gallons for the long weekends boondocking away from any gas stations.

I found this handy little transfer pump that does a great job fueling up. It moves more fuel than trying to hold the can with the gravity fill.

The three AA batteries last for quite a few fill ups. It is so light, you could take it with on the trail.

I found mine at Walmart for $9. With the new nozzles on gas cans it’s a real pain in the ass trying to pour in. With this, im able to drain and fill a 5 gallon tank with a couple minutes.

The pumps really helps when you're down to the last 25% of a five gallon jug trying to tip it up high for that last bit to get fuel into the tank.

I wish they made jugs like they used to. None of this safety crap that “could” cause a spill. It’s just too much.

Well I do want the pump now!

Here's my solution for emptying a can and dealing with the safety nozzles. I put a 3-foot piece of clear tubing on the funnel. Stick that in the tank. I drilled a hole in the funnel and keep a piece of wire through it to tie the funnel so it hangs in position to pour the fuel in. If the fuel container has a safety nozzle, just remove it and pour the damn gas in. NO BATTERIES!

Fortunately, I have the old gas cans with the pull out spout and vent. For the newer cans with the safety spouts, I use this solution.

I use the VP racing 5 gallon jugs. With the nozzle and bender on it. Makes quick work of emptying the 5 gallon jug. For some reason it says for off road use only on them. Must be some .gov regulation. But they empty out fast as hell. I’m not that lazy yet to get a battery pump.
It's not about being lazy, but efficient. lol

I find much easier to top off the tank without spilling.

I use the same thing just cheaper.

These are the shizznit for converting to old style filler on gas cans.

Wonder if they better quality than the ez pour brand that look just alike. Had bad luck with them . they are too cheaply made. The seals get destroyed quickly because the parts don't interface properly. My experience anyway

These work but are cheaply made and will fail . The ones I had have lasted 8 fill ups on now the screw on caps have split all time the same place

I'm still looking for a good solution. I have bought and installed the little yellow vent caps they sell on ebay and some of the vented spouts actually work ok when the can is vented. I guess the vp cans will be my next purchase they just seem to tall to me to fit in the back of my truck with the cover on. Thanks u.s. government for keeping us safe

Go to your local Motorcycle shop or if you have them a Big R farm store. Buy the race fuel gas cans you see for motorcycles. has a screw air vent and flexible hose.
