The 1st review guy had a good point. The tank valve fitting is molded to the tank and it is to close for the hose fitting. You have to pull up on the fitting as you turn slightly deforming the tank. Going slowly and being careful is the "Way Around". Shouldn't have to. The fitting isn't supplied because every mfg has to sell their own " money maker". The double vent is a pain. Vacuums the tank to colaspe if not opened properly! Stalled on the lake is scarey. "Brain Time". Open valve fully.
Poor design, leaks
I bought one of these tanks yesterday because it was the only 3-gallon tank available at my local store. When I unboxed it, the first thing I found was that the tank does not have a fitting for an outboard fuel hose--you have to buy that separately. After procuring the hose fitting, I found that the location of the threaded tap for the fuel hose fitting is so close to the tank that it is not possible to screw the fitting in. The only way to screw the hose fitting into the tank is to partially unscrew the tap from the tank. Unfortunately, doing this breaks the seal and causes the tank to leak, which you don't know until you fill it with gasoline, and once you have done that, you can't return the leaky broken tank. A total waste of money.
Very poor design, does not work, waste of money.
Very poor design choices on this take, cannot easily get the normal fuel fitting in it, the tank does not vent correctly and because of the way it is designed you cannot get the fuel out of it into another tank. Cannot return it due to it having fuel in it already. I will be filing a claim with my credit card company because Walmart will not take it back. Should not be allowed on the USA market because it does not meet the USA specifications. This tank in made in Canada.
Purchased this new at Walmart and the cap does not vent. The gas tank swells up to the point it looks like it will explode. Can not take it back as I have used it ONE time. Someone needs to send a replacement cap that actually works correctly as this is a unsafe product.
