Skip to comments.Help! My gas can won't work. Spout is plugged with gubment cheese!

My gas can spout broke. You all know the one I am talking about. The old one. The one that works. Has a vent on the back and an unimpeded spout. The one I have been using carefully and preserving. Preserving because it WORKS. It does exactly what it is supposed to do. I fill it up with gas and transfer said gas to wherever I want it.
The godless communist Statist freaks. Those gubment cheese swilling unelected shiite life long employees have taken my gas can and ruined it. So these numb skulls, shiite brains who can ruin a gas can get to control my doctor? Really?
Tar and feather all of them.
Thank God I found a black market on Ebay for gas cans and spouts. I am sick of dumb mudder truckers screwing stuff up. The idiots who designed and mandated them have never had to use a gas can!
I like cheese...
Yeah, those new “no vapor” spouts really suck. Try pessing the lever to keep the darn thing open while pouring 5 gallons is a chore.
I have one too and I am pretty sure that it can be made more usable by taking off most of the extra crap.
Eagle U2-51-S gas safety can is made with no top or side seam and a double interlock no-weld bottom seam
Made of lead-free, hot-dipped 24-gauge, deep-drawn galvanized steel with baked-on high gloss powder coat finish
The filler spout and flame arrestors in both openings are non-sparking brass designed for flashback protection
Features two openings: a pressure-relief spring closing lid for filling, and an actuated pour valve with a 7/8" O.D. flexible metal spout for safer controlled dispensing
Made in the USA; 100-percent leak tested
These new spouts are too short to fit in your vehicle. Well you can do it if you don’t mind half the fuel on the ground. I use a gasketed self tapping screw for the vent in the back. No helping that mudder trucking spout.
The UT doesn’t normally accept applications for residency but I am pinging Dark anyway.
Think of this post as a stand-in for the kittycat “WTF?” picture it deserves.
Other than that, eBay and C/L good resources.
Better yet, the utility jugs that motorcycle racers use:
Can get really good spouts for them.
Northern Tools have some good cans.Cost a bit .
Remove the spout, and use a funnel. Put spout back on when finished.
It worked for me.
I use a funnel sometimes but it is slow. Found a real big diameter one at Tractor Supply. But the spout is only 12 inches long and the funnel is 36 inches in diameter. I just ordered the Eagle safety can.
That looks cool. I just ordered one.
I still hate the gubment. Gas can does not have to cost 70 bucks to work. They are bankrupting the country with these hidden costs.
I have been forced to buy old cans at yard sales... I recently had to replace the tank in my boat.. I bought a 100 dollar plastic EPA tank..
The thing pressurized and split the seam while blowing gas through the floats on my boat motor.
12 gallons of 4.29 a gallon fuel and 8 bucks of oil all down in the bulge of my boat..
“How to Fix a New Gas Can”. . . It’s pretty easy and is explained in this entertaining video.
For $260 it had better be “better”.
I thought you were talking about your Natural Gas Port. Too much cheese will stop that one up too.
I wish gubment cheese would plug up Obamies pie hole.
