    I am not fully up-to-date on the new gas can spouts, but I seem to recall reading something about there being a safety aspect wherein if the poured gas were to ignite it would travel up the pour stream and into the can, creating an explosion that can severely injure the operator. Supposedly the new pour spouts help to prevent this from happening.

    Unless I am missing something can’t you just take the spout off and use a funnel while pouring the gas directly into your lawnmower or what have you? Is that now somehow illegal or something?!

    You can always drill a hole and add a valve stem and cap to any plastic gas jug. It will make them pore so much better! Just check You Tube it shows how and where to put them. And I added a new flex spout too.

    That sounds like a good idea. Its not so much the spout as it is no vent that makes them not work.
