    When you fill the cans, do you remove them from the rack and place on the ground to fill?
    I have filled them in the rack, I am not sure if it's the best idea, but I haven't been yelled at by a gas station employee. I know that filling tanks in the back of a pickup with a plastic bed liner is a no-no.
    Here in the "People's republic of California" your not even suppose to use gas can that are not certified by the California air resource board. I hate the California legal gas cans, they supposedly don't leak the gas vapors to the atmosphere. But they leak half your gasoline when filling up equipment or a motorcycle, what kind of environmental savings is that?

    When a gas can is still on the vehicle the static charge is not discharged which can happen in cold weather. Put the cans on the ground and fill to be safe.............Nick

    Sorry, it's a hoax. Do you put your car's fuel tank on the ground when you fill it? The fuel nozzle is grounded through a wire braid in the hose . . . just keep the nozzle in contact with the can. It's a much better ground than asphalt or concrete.
