Re: New fuel spouts SUCK!!!!

Has anybody read the science behind why we have these new cans?

Now the government enters it? Please give me a break . Every answer to everything can not be a political statement

Maybe if you spent the money listened to others recommendations and bought a quality bottom paint you wouldn't have the issue.

Maybe you could list a few examples of how the government doesn't intrude on our lives?

Wrong forum. This forum is for the discussion of gear and maintenance. Please take you traffic to another channel. Out

Wrong place for this discussion. Go to politics forum

Seems some people are obsessed with the government want to bring politics into every discussion or thread

If you'd like to start a thread in the other topic area i am sure you get plenty of bites.

Please analyze And read thoroughly before you post as I said the same thing you said basically and agreed with you.

Also find someone else to shout at. Capitalizing letters in e mails is tantamount to shouting and you don't have the "right" to shout at anyone. It isn't condusive to a discussion.

Re: New fuel spouts SUCK!!!!

Back to the OP topic. The spouts are here to stay. Initially I struggled using them but eventually figured it out to where there is no spillage. I haven't seen any real material difference in the work quality of the spout and the ones I have are flexible enough to bend and rigid enough to be durable.

the issue with the work around of using the old spouts on the new container is no vent to allow back pressure with the "new" cans sans vents.

Someone could probably come up with a better way I gueas. I thought having the vent controllable at / on the spout was actually a good idea.

Excuse me?? Your post #53 said

"Maybe you could list a few examples of how the government doesn't intrude on our lives?"

My post (#54) as well as Chef's were in direct response to that, asking you keep your comments on topic (meaning gear and maintenance), rather than the intrusion of government into our lives which is what you are talking about in your post.
