Re: Gasonline cans recommendations

Well here in Quebec we still have these kinds of nozzles.
In the picture, it's upside down, the venting tube (little ridge underside) should be on the top side for venting.

They work well, but you can't tilt the gas can too much otherwise the venting tube will be flooded.

alkizmo See Profile Here's what I'm talking about. You can see a small spring hanging at the bottom of the spout.

A hint that these are a problem is there is a rack of replacement spouts in the area of the cans.

Yeah I can see those things breaking easily.
I'm glad we still have plenty of flexible spouts cans.

Funny I checked the price of those replacement spouts, it's like 6$-8$, 75% the price of a whole new can.

Yup. Starting at $5 at Canadian Tire.

Those American cans look like somebody trying to over-engineer a simple thing.

That's it exactly IMHO.
