Re: "Safe" gasoline containers

I agree, too. Instead of relying on the finicky spouts I've resorted to using a siphon to get gas out of the newer containers. A long length of plastic hose attached to the inbound end of a gas line squeeze bulb and a 4" to 6" piece of hose on the outbound end works very well. Once the squeeze bulb gets the flow going be careful about potential overflow.
