How do you know that. Who has the authority to police these gas cans. I have one from 20 years ago, I love it and I not want to loose it, that's why I was asking.

Yeah - he says in the video he takes the valve out. Still don't think it's a good idea.

My old roomie and his family are avid dune riders (mostly quads) and we were told by one of their riding buddies who went down to ride a few months ago. Just like taking homegrown fruit or the like, they have the right to confiscate them apparently. I'm sure not all border stations WILL, but as I understand it, they can refuse entry into CA with one of the old style cans.

Bullshit. The inspection stations at or near California state line are Agricultural Inspections stations and nothing more. The same goes with the Border Patrol that has inspections points near the Mexico border. They don't have any authority to inspect for CARB compliance. Now if you happen to get pulled over by the CHP for some other infraction, you could get dinged IF you had California plates.

Anyone here from CHP to chime in on the law that they can enforce?

I've traveled from CA - AZ and CA - NV few times, and have yet to see state border patrol.

IMO, I think California gas stations can refuse to sell you gasoline in one of those containers, but I don't think anyone can confiscate them. Possession of those are not considered illegal, most they'll ask you to empty the gas by putting the gas in your motorcycle/car, etc, and give you a an advice not to use it. I believe usage of these are controlled through shops, i.e. it is illegal to sell them in California.

Recently, I purchased a Rotopax, and I also purchased a yellow spout to replace the standard that comes with them, right here in CA. I haven't used it, but I believe it won't spill. My next visit to Canada, I plan on buying 5L by Scepter for $5.99 and bring it back with me.

OK so you made me look up the law. Apparently CARB can only make the selling of the offending gas cans illegal. I looked up hazardous as well as flammable and combustible vehicle codes and found nothing related to gas can fill spout regs. There is nothing to be found regarding filling of said offending spouts either.

Apparently the type of can shown in the video posted by the OP are no longer sold in the stores around here, at one time that was the only type Walmart sold, the new version is still a non vented type but has a different type of on/off, the ones wallyworld sells now have a collar type on/off that is on the spout, turn the collar one way for on, turn it the other way for off.

I modified my cans like the one shown in the video after watching that, i have 2.5 acres to mow every week in the summer and the unvented, safety latch type cans drive me nuts, pouring 5gal of gas into the mower was slow, now maybe that will speed up the process a little, i know some will say so what, it takes a little time to pour gas but by the time i mow, weed eat and blow off the concrete i end up spending a little over 2 hours.

I really like the "No Spill" cans. My favorite gas can ever - I prefer it to any of the old fashioned Non "spill proof" cans I have had over the years.

It is great to hold the nozzle over a gas tank opening and then push the trigger to release the gas.
