    This morning a cousin told me tractor supply has aftermarket “EZ-Pour” spouts for plastic gas cans.

    I bought 2 this afternoon… best thing since sliced bread. A little pricey, $28 and change for 2. These spouts are quality. The yellow attaching nut has a nice rubber gasket and doesn’t leak. Also, most pour spouts are 1/2 inch or 5/8th in diameter. These are 1 inch.

    I over filled the generator when I got home. It took less than a minute to pour 4 gallons.

    The EZ-Pour comes in two pieces about 8 inches long. One attaches to the can, the other is an extension if you wish to use it. Nothing snaps together, the extension and the little yellow cap on the end are threaded.

    I highly recommend these as replacements for the crappy pour spouts that usually come on plastic gas cans.

    How did you know I was going to get 0n here and rant about gas cans?? I bought a 5gal one today and had to look up a YouTube video to show me how to get the gas back out!! There is no reason it should be so complicated and require 3 hands to use!




    I have several of those Peanut. Much better than the new ones.

    Idiots starting fires are the cause for all the new worthless fuel spouts. Lawsuits are ruining the country. Well contributing to ruining the country. Plenty of other blame to go around.

    Same at our RK. They always are better prices than TS does. And a better selection.

    I think that all of the forums have had discussions about spouts and what a problem the ones that are being sold now are. There are a bunch of videos out there about replacing the problematic spouts. These look good and I will hunt some down to replace on my gas cans. Thank you.

    All the new spouts are to short too. I spill as much as I get in the tank.

    I just topped off my generator for the night... I love this new spout! With the extension it gives me a 16 inch flexible spout. The fact it's 1 inch in diameter makes it great, it dumps the fuel out at more than twice the rate of the other ones... If you double the diameter of a pipe you quadruple the volume of liquid that can flow through it.

    The fill cap for my generator is in the most inconvenient spot. A full gas can weighs just over 40lbs. To fill the generator requires holding 40lbs with one hand in an awkward position, a crappy pour spout with the other and hope I don't spill gas everywhere...

    A couple of my gas cans are 10 or 12 years old, they have very short flexible spouts. 3 more are about 7 years old with stiff short spouts. I bought 2 new cans last year with weird multipart spouts I still haven't figured out... They are always the last used... I put on a spout from one of the older cans.

    I'm glad I bought 2 of these new replacements... One will stay with the generator, the other with the gas cans in the shop.

    Here is ones I actually purchased at tractor supply, about 4 bucks per unit higher in price than Rural king... Funny, I haven't thought of Rural King in years, none of their stores are here. I'm pretty sure I bought a set of snow tires from a Rural King in Wisconsin in 1984, but that was a long time ago. ;)

    That was very clear, but he, like many speaks slowly. I sped this video up to 1.5 and it was still very clear to me.

    Like a lot of other things you can blame California for this stupidity.
    I guess a lot of Californians couldn't pour water out of a boot with the instructions printed on the bottom.

    Not sure on others regulations but in this state it is illegal to use them and I’m note sure if that’s also a federal regulation too. They are only legal here for “water” cans / containers... :LOL:

    It is my understanding that the EPA required these new cans and spouts in order to help capture the fumes expelled from the fuel tank when you fill your vehicle. There is also the added benefit of spilling two or three times more fuel than with the old system but hey, it's the law.

    I pick up an old style can every time I get a chance. You can still buy the rebuild kits in Canada so I pick up a couple kits every time I visit.

    I have a stock of the EZ Pour spouts because eventually they will make it illegal to buy/sell these awesome spouts to! I buy (1) ammo can and (1) EZ spout every time I go into rural king, ammo cans are great for storing stuff and I use them for tool boxes on farm equipment. Just bolt it on through the bottom twice and be sure to use some RTV on the bolts so it seals. I have one on my tractor, one on my square bailer, one on my tiller (6 foot) and one on the mini excavator they make great tool boxes.

    That might be part of the plan.

    I changed my spouts from the EPA PC approved to the old fashion ones that work. I'm waiting until a jug is empty before drilling a hole for the air-vent cap. Problem I keep forgetting and refill the jug(s). I remember when it chug-a-lugs when I'm filling a tank.

    That no vent ting is just stupid. The gas can sits there and swells into a balloon because the gas can't escape. I wonder how many have blown a seam.
