Smart Fill Fuel Can (Original)

If you own the original style Smart-Fill Gas Can, and you are experiencing problems with a sticking nozzle, the use of some carb/choke cleaner can dissolve any gum or varnish that may be causing the nozzle to stick. Alternatively, penetrating sprays such as WD-40 or Pow'R Blaster can also be used to help loosen a sticking nozzle.

Unfortunately, replacement nozzles for this gas can are no longer available.
