    This is silly. Just mix your gas ahead of time and put it in a normal can, no?

    One side of the can is for mixed gas and the other side is for bar oil. It is so you do not have to carry two cans into the woods with you.

    Got it. Thought it was some sort of 2-cycle mixing device.

    The aftermarket milk crates are cheap. They break apart if you look at them funny. Real deal milk crates are very durable. You can drive over them with a tractor and they'll be fine.

    I still like the idea of a combi can one less thing to carry. And they even have a spot to store a file and scrench.

    Here is a CARB compliant version. Gets awful revies because of the spout design. Price is better though.

    I am about to order 6 of these in black and see how they do. The shipping might be a killer though.

    You know, (I'm thinking what I can post without repercussion). Um. is the dealer locator policy like the 7 day wait (cool off period) on gun purchase? I think they would sell twice as many if they offered an online option.

    Me too!
    Milk crate holds it all.
    Half of the reason I started burning wood was to SAVE money.
    What is the advantage of one of these?

    Has anyone seen or used the "Rotopax" type fuel/oil/water cans?
    They look awesome and have a real cool mounting system for vehicles but they are a bit spendy.

    When I was a kid my dad had a bunch of really nice round metal cans but they're super hard to find these days.

    This was found at a yard sale for $1.00. But we still end up taking a separate oil container when its cold out. (Bringing the oil in overnight to warm it up, which really seemed to help.)

    Hi, Here's my input.:)
    I have both of these combi cans[provided by my employer] the stilh version is the more expensive and is of a better quality.
    The two holes either end of the handle are useful for attaching a shoulder strap,which helps when carrying the can to the work site as well as the saw and small tool box.:cool:
    The husky combi can is ok at the moment as it is only 3 months old but only time will tell if it lasts as long as the stilh combi can.;ex
    Regards Tim.

    the 7-11 near me has a mountain of milk crates right around the side of the building. I have "borrowed" many in the past and they dont seem to mind...

    What is with tying your gas can to your oil can? It ain't like they are married! I have a small one gallon plastic gas can and a one quart plastic oil jug and I let them live separately. The 2 in one cans look like they wood be clumsy to use.

    I tie my two jugs together with some twine for two reasons. 1) When I'm walking in the woods it is easier to carry the jugs by the twine in one hand or I can lope one jug on the front and one on my back with the twine resting on my shoulder. 2) It always keeps the chainsaw gas next to the bar oil.

    I suppose the whole twine thing also goes back to my deep seated need to tie things up . . . my bondage fetish. ;)
