I use Lucozade sport bottles for oil; the squirty top means you get precise control on how much goes in so no overfilling plus you don't get any drips.

Lucozade bottles sounds quite intelligent, provided they are robust enough to stand a bit of knocking about in the vehicle-not a nice thing to spill in the Dogandlogmobile (Audi Estate). I'd have thought petrol might dissolve them?

Has anyone else noticed if they have a Stihl dual fuel can, the carrystrap suspension lugs to the side of the caps are quite lethal. Several times when twisting the top off, I've caught the base of my thumb on them, taking off the skin and leaving a raw hole. Ouch. Currently sporting another wound from them, so I sawed them off with my Bahco- thats one less injury I'm going to suffer from now on. 8-)

I wondered what the heck you were talking out as I've not once had such a problems. Now I've checked I see that I've combined an Oregon fuel and oil can with the Stihl no-spill fillers. Works well, no modification required, and no injuries!

As pictured, plus OCP special effects. Wound is three days old. Square edged plastic can be surprisingly sharp when it catches twisting flesh. A poor piece of design, whoever did it on a c.a.d screen in the design studio never tried opening one several times.

Looks like it holds 3 sharpening files.

One side is indeed for files (which I have actually used!), the other according to Stihl's website is for 'tools', although it doesn't specify which tools, how you'd fit them on the strangely ribbed plastic, or links to supplies of said mystery tools. I've concluded its really useful for rolls of bandages, so when you take the side of your thumb off with the wretchedly designed carrying lugs, you can conveniently pick off the side of the can the required medical supplies to repair the damage the same said can has just caused. Simples. Another possibility is to keep a large stick inserted in the gap, so that when the can wounds you, you can at least get some satisfaction beating the crap out of it; "Right, that's the last time you draw my blood, I've warned you before, now I'm going to give you a damned good thrashing !" :lol:

You don't have much luck with thumbs do you OCP???? Sawing them off with your Bahco is a bit drastic though? ;) ;) ;)

when you think about it, paws was a good forum name for ocp, like a dog or cat, no opposable thumbs, we keep seeing post's where ocp has tried to hack his bits off, and failed, billhooks and petrol cans, I would suggest he tries an imported chainsaw next :D

Just read this thread and realised I need an Eco spout for my scepter combi can now. Getting the gear for looking after woodland never seems to end!
