I've noticed it can be a bit difficult fueling up the Viking with a couple of the gas cans I have, so I was looking at new cans. Unfortunately, here in wonderful California, all of the new cans must me CARB compliant. I could go on a rant, but let's just say these things SUCK! Anyways, I was wondering if any of the other states were dealing with this and, if so. what kind of gas cans you were using...AND...if they are CARB compliant?
I have found this one, but I'm not sure how well it would work on the Viking filler neck. Kinda pricey too!

these are the tuf jugs?


guess you just need anything with a spout that is narrow enough.
From what I understand, that would not be CARB compliant.
The way I understand it. They need to be spill proof - self venting - red - and must say "gasoline" on the side. Those VP, LC and JEGS bottles with the clear hoses, or pop off vents, cannot be used in CA. I went to WalMart and purchased one of the ones with the push down lever...and it's a PIA.

There has to be something better out there! Maybe the TUFF JUG would work? I does look pretty easy in the video.

agreed... I have a typical spout gas can and one of them PIA self-venting POS.. Filling it is a pain with either.. can never fully empty the cans

I started a thread on the same topic on here, awhile back. The hole is to far into the plastic, i cant lift my gas can up to get all the gas out unless i turn it sideways, or upside down, etc. I had a Ranger 500, and it was even with hte plastics, not sunk into the plastic like the Vikings is. It was easy to fill.

I also drive mine to the store. Just out of curiosity, how many miles are you all getting on a tank full? I only get about 55-60 but I do idle around alot on the farm.

Ive never really paid attention, but it doesnt seem like it last as long as my Ranger did.

illegal 3rd term governor brown should embrace these bs fuel.can restrictions by demonstrating what happens when he holds his lighter next to the fill spout - while pressing the latch..

maybe then.california legislators will review the constitution and consider not slowly withdrawing its great citizens from their earned freedoms....other than that, the home fueling station seems like an.awesome idea...hope it has the option of removing any of.the.low-IQ controls...

approved gas cans

Here is what I use...I have 4 of them. Two red for gas, one blue for kerosene and one yellow for diesel.

Eagle Manufacturing Company - Safety Cans & Oilers

I have a storage room with about 20 different crappy red plastic gas cans-they all suck.

the steel ones don't leak or spill or smell in my Jeep when I transport them. They don't leak in the back of my Ranger or my Viking either. I ordered them all off of Amazon.com. You can order them with or without the yellow funnel ( I have one for each).
