You're fortunate.
Not everybody else has similar experience.
I'll venture to say that are more tiny spills and gasoline splashes to eyes from using these spouts than from the older no-brainer spouts. Nope, no peer-reviews white papers, only real world experience.
Cut the excess plastic mold tails away and you are good.

I venture to say spills are less than more. But I have no more proof of that than you😀

Re: New fuel spouts SUCK!!!!

Maybe it's something different in the spouts you bought. I, like most here, can't make the damn things work. So if you have a good experience maybe you can get with someone who is having a bad experience and then try to figure out why that is and report back. If I'm doing something wrong, I'd like to know what that is.

Re: New fuel spouts SUCK!!!!

My personal experience, with two versions of these new spouts, is I have spilled more with them in the last few years, than I had with every regular can in my lifetime. It's not me, the junky things get stuck, bent, worn out. They're plastic for goodness sakes. I think they might now be making better designs that work better, but there seems to be no good reason for them.

Ironically, spilled gasoline evaporates for the most part. How's that worse than insuring every last drop is burned and pollutes the atmosphere?

There is no logic here.

They're the cleanest solution I've found. I own a shaker siphon but drips on the deck and fuel on the hands are inevitable when packing it up.
I just bought one of these, haven't used it yet so we'll see. Looks better than the gas spouts that require way too much pressure to open. Good idea to accomplish the task just so poorly designed and built.

Re: New fuel spouts SUCK!!!!

The ones where you have a push-button valve work OK, although it does take a long time to empty. The ones where the spout itself is spring loaded valve that you push down on a lip on what you are filling are garbage. Fuel spills everywhere.

Re: New fuel spouts SUCK!!!!

Of course they ignore the propane tank fiasco, of course those seem to work well for them too. Ignoring the massive propane spillage when filling. No, can't speak to the obvious....
Not to forget flooding the landfills with millions of empty canisters that worked just fine!
Give it a rest buddy. Left wing wacky doodle nonsense doesn't resonate with most of us trying to get the hell away from it on the seas!

Re: New fuel spouts SUCK!!!!

guys guys guys simple solution....

I take my crappy new tank to the gas station.

then when I get home I transfer the gas into one of these minus the goofy spout and a hole drilled in the top so it will pour just fine.

works like a champ.

or I guess you could skip a step and get some red paint!!!
