The tank is very small, so it needs to be filled up occasionally when out on the water. Using a small 5-litre jerry can and a large funnel (I've tried with and without the funnel), I’ve attempted to fill up the tank without spilling. But I still end up spilling a few drops of gas into the water, due to:
- Awkward positioning of the motor.
- Tippy boat: the boat is a narrow 12-ft aluminum boat and I’m big & tall. So it's awkward to balance when leaning over the back of the boat.
- It’s hard to tell when the tank is full due to the funnel and jerry can spout blocking my view.
- The jerry can’s spout makes pouring awkward due to the flexible spout and the high flow rate.
I think solving #4 would help with this issue.
Is there a type of jerry can that is designed more like a small watering can, with a rigid spout and lower flow rate, that would be less awkward for filling the gas tank? Or something else/better?
