Re: "Safe" gasoline containers

I've had to transfer fuel from 5-gallon jugs at sea more times than I can remember. A siphon is my first choice, but I can use a flexible spout without spilling a drop, too. Those new spouts seem best at spewing diesel all over the deck. Whoever invented (mandated) those achieved exactly the opposite result they wanted...unless the object was to increase the amount of fuel oil in the ocean.
If I ever find the guy whose idea this was...well, I doubt any jury would convict me!
