I have been using a funnel very much like that for 30 years or more. It works great for filtering out dirt and water from your gas or diesel.I know you are asking about Mr. Funnel,no I have no experience with that brand,but I'm sure it works good.

Thanks for the comment. I guess I should have asked, "or similar products." Looks like a good thing to have.

I haven't ever used a similar product or the Mr. Funnel but it does sound like a good idea. I got a kick of the guy kicking his lawnmower.

I do not have any experience with those. I did take a peek at the price though. MSRP for the #3 is $30! but if you buy it online it's only $18 and some change (+shipping of course). It seems a little steep for my tastes, but then I was 17 years old the last time I got a tank of bad gas. I guess it's a cheap insurance policy considering that most fuels are "laced" with ethanol these days. (ethanol is hygroscopic don't ya know)

It looks like a decent product to me. Thanks for the cost figures, as I was wondering. For twenty bucks, I might try it.

Never tried it but can it really be that easy ?

Are there filter cartridges you have to replace and how much are they, and I wonder if it's that easy to get moisture out of your fuel why hasn't Blitz or one of the gas can makers come out with one built into the can ? It wouldn't cut into their sales any but sure would make theirs look better than the competitors fuel can.

Also with the new EPA 15% ethanol requirement why hasn't the filter market jumped on this technology ?

Sorry I guess I'm a skeptic or It may have something to do with the voice-over guy he sure sounds like the one who used to do the pocket fisherman commercials, and we all know where that end up.

But if it's proven to work you bet Ill buy several.
