    I did not know this about this gas pack. It has a "no-spill" spout. You have to pull a slide back to open a valve.





    The green collar is the locking mechanism. Twist to align the slots:







    Slide it down and hold (seems like it will be a bit aggravating):







    Here's how it works. This valve remains closed unless you're pulling that collar back:







    Open:







    I don't know whether to be fascinated or annoyed...

    I have that exact same sprout on a 2 gallon can and cannot stop it from leaking where the spout conects to the can itself! I have given up and take the spout off and pour straight from the can....frustrating.

    Simple fix. You can buy a "water only" spout which has a vent and no stupid leak proof valve. Works excactly like the cans of onld only they cannot sell the spout as for use on "gas cans"





    http://www.rotopax.com/Self-Venting-Spout.html



    is a direct link to the spout to buy. They also sell the seal between the spout and the can that is thick and good quality.

    What a world we live in. The new spouts designed to not have leaks --- I challenge anyone to transfer fuel with the new spout with out spillage.



    While the old style which are no good, can transfer fuel easily with out leakage.



    Progress!!!!





    I have the water type spout on a Rotopax and it works great.

    The spout is a major pain, and they are on everything now, even my 1 gallon can, and the Rotopax cans as well. You will absolutely get gas all over your hands, and the only way I got mine to not leak was to do the twist and pull maneuver while screwing it on. More gas on hands. It's a good thing somebody is watching out for us, or we would just pour our gas into our tanks like we have done for decades.
