Re: Where can I get a normal gas can?

If you go to e bay search up member elisgeneralstore2012. Click on item's for sale he has vent caps. 1/8 pilot hole  then 1/2 wood bit hold the cap over the hole hit with a hammer and snap it in place 1 minute job. Plastic can only of coarse. Will turn that piece of junk can into something that works. Will dump fuel in and sound like a jet motor. I think it may work even better than the old cans if your going for a full dump as you now have two vents well 1  and  1/2 anyways

I like that idea with the tape. I have a dedicated gas can for the 2-cycle mix and I label it as such "2-cycle mix only".  I usually put the oil in right before I add the gas so that I know it is ready to go when I need it.  In this case I was filling the tank of the snow blower and the fuel color didn't look right to me; I could not remember adding oil.  That and the oil I had was still in a sealed, unopened bottle.

Anyway, the tape idea with the date and ratio is foolproof, provided you update the label every time you fill it.
Yep have to write it down. Everyones been there if your relying on memory

dumping a little more oil in some older unknown  gas makes little sense to me. Too much not enough? I would have put the old gas in the car dosnt matter if oil in or not at that ratio added to more in a car tank. 2 stroker oil is meant to burn. No cost envolved as you added oil anyways. I have on hand sometimes several types of gas/oil mixtures and straight gas for generator and such. What i do is when I mix gas put a piece of tape on the can telling what it is and what date you did it. And yes all unused gas after seasons I dump in the truck

That's old hat. 

It's abundantly clear that it's an Arien's commercial and the guy on the SS machine is dogging it.   Not hardly a fair comparison. 

No one is saying that an SS machine will do what a two stage machine is capable of.  However, it will perform better than what that video indicates.   I have a Toro 221Q two stroke with the engine rpms properly set.  It will embarrass the SS machine in that video. 
 x 2 Thats an infomercial like the guy that cant cook eggs or peel potatos he's a duefus unless he has this product. How many times do you blow from the street in. They both have their strengths and weaknesses. You could pull the SS out of the truck and be halfway done before you could unload a 2 stage. You can pull a SS right through a drift and start anywhere you want. Just as from the begining of time the right tool for the right job

Dosnt seem like much a  compromise you are asking a SS machine to do 2 out of 3 things that dosnt do the best. It can handle EOD pretty good if you get it right away with in reason. By going sideways on it taking bites instead of wasting time trying to blast a full bucket straight through to the street if have a normal one car drive.  It takes some of your muscle to do that and add that your doing 30 feet of street also. Compromise going away pretty fast. Doing the grass just as much or more muscle trying not to tear up the grass too much. A snow scoop push in and pull back a chunk works way easier on a grass path. No lifting and can dump it on hard surface and blown it with your machine would be a compromise
