Everyday Green Tips

Gasoline cans used for home use.

The only gas cans I can find at the hardware store are those that reduce the amount of gas vapor that is released.

I hate them. I believe they cause MORE pollution than the old style. Everytime I fill my lawn mower I end up spilling gas on the driveway, the lawn mower and on me.

These types of gas cans might pass some EPA test in the laboratory but in real life they fail miserable.

Make no mistake. I by and large I trust to the EPA to work in the best interest of the USA but these cans are a failure.

I suggest someone from the EPA go several different hardware stores and buy gas cans from several different manufacturers and see just how well these over-the-counter cans work.

I feel better now.

(I have to run and change clothes and wash the gas smell off me.)
