Tired of your
"Blitz" can not blitzing very fast? Finding yourself holding
your jerry can forever as the gas slowly trickles into your tank?
Wait no more, as this easy inexpensive fix will have the gas flowing
like it should. What this fix will do is replace that tiny air hole
with a larger hole and will prevent massive amounts of fuel from
spilling onto the ground or all over the side of your vehicle.
- 3'-4' of
*" ID fuel line, or similar hose unaffected by fuel. It must
fit unside your fuel filler hose that screws onto the jerry can
and still have room for gas to get through.
- 2 plastic
- 1' of baling
wire Fuel float (from old fuel sender)
- 5 gal gas
can and filler attachment
- Wire cutters
What to do:
Remove the filter
from the end of the jery can's filler attachment with your adjustable
pliers. Insert the fuel line into the filler attachment. Allow 4-5
inches to stick out of the end that will be inserted into the gas
tank. Loop the hose around so it makes a U turn at the opening of
the filler. Take a zip tie and tie it to the filler neck near the
opening. Tie another zip tie around to secure the end of the rubber
Now take the
bottom end of the hose(that will be in the jerry can once the filler
attachment is screwed onto the can) and tie it around the fuel float.
Make sure the float and tubing will reach to the bottom of the jerry
can. Tie the tubing so that the end of the tube is parallel to the
rest of the tube. Just a regular knot. No fancy Boy Scout stuff
here . You don't want to crush the tubing by tying too tightly,
so I used bailing wire to secure the tubing instead.
That's it! When
ready to use, open the jerry can, place the float/tube into the
can and screw the filler attachment onto the can. Use the rubber
gasket from the lid to form a tight seal. This larger gasket will
also cover up the original inadequate air hole.
Pour the gas
as you normally would. The float keeps the tube on top of the fuel,
and air can enter the can as fuel exits into your gas tank. Result:
Faster fuel flow and less tired hands and no more passengers whining
"Are you done, yet?"
