      Follow the link below. We probably have ten of these between me and my buddy. They only take a minute to drop the fuel. They are the best and I'm sure you can just have them delivered to Cali.

          Just a suggestion....Drill a small vent hole in the handle area (roughly the same location as where they used to be when they came standard) and then put a small screw into the hole to cap it when transporting. I have a couple of the newer cans and have done this and the fuel flows just like it did in the old cans.
          If you do decide to drill it, make sure the can is empty and tuen it upside down and drill slow to avoid the chance of any particals falling inside the can.
          Good luck.

            Dirt Bike shops have them most of the time out here. Often times auto parts stores have them, but put a label on them that say "For water" or something along those lines. They will also sell them with a cap, that you have to take the plug out and make your own spout with a valve.
            Lots of power is good, more is better, too much is just right.

              Get one of these, sucks every last drop out of the can and you won't spill any on your gel.

                Race Gas Cans

                Any race shop has the 5 gal dump cans. (Jegs, Summit, Etc)...
                Good quality and durable. I have four for the racecar, two for the boat.

                And if you really want to be fancy you can get the shutoff valve (manual)

                Or really fancy:

                        Wish I would have know you were selling the VP jugs 2 years ago, Kal_Dude. I purchased 5 new ones as my old non VP jugs started leaking. The VP jugs are the best since I have tried other brands and the adjustable vent is a much better design - it is much thicker plastic that won't strip out or break.
                        The filler tube fits perfectly into the MC gas fill hole as well and never drips on the gel.

                        I highly recommend the VP cans.

                          Even better, get a 5' or so length of hose (1.5" OD I think, or the size that just barely fits into the opening of the cans, with the cap/filler removed). Then put the hose in the can, to the bottom, and in your boat fill, making sure the can is higher than the fill, like on your swim deck. Hold around the area where the hose goes into the can to seal with your fingers. Now, squeeze the can, just enough to get the gas flowing and let go. It will empty the can in around 30 seconds--its like a pit stop, its amazing. I learned this at the wakeboard camp and couldn't believe how fast it fills, and you don't even have to hold up the can at all. It takes a little practice at first, but its super easy once you get the hang of it.

                          You may have to make a reducer for the hose (steel pipe) for it to fit into your filler, and it works well if you notch the end that goes into the can with 4 little "V's" so the hose won't suction to the bottom of the can.

All I can find are these easy flow, no spill cans that take me 15 minutes to empty into my boat. I know I can find a bigger marine size tank w nozzle, but I need the smalle 5 gallon sizes for other things as well. Anbody have any ideas or know of a secret stash? Checked jeggs and Summit racing. They have steel cans still w a funnel, li

                            I had the same problem about a year ago.Couldn't find the old style cans.I looked at the VP 5 gallon jugs alot of people us them for dirt bike. but they were pricey so i held off.About a month ago I orderd two VP jugs online.I am glad I did the VP jugs are high quality and empty quickly.I would suggest spending alittle more now and get the VP jugs.

                                VP are better than the ones I posted... You pay for quality and its worth it.
                                I chose the cheaper ones.
