Just IMO, I've "done" funnels, OK up to a point but got to be so slow and steady else it sloshes everywhere. I've got a bendy spout for my jerry can (came with), is much more positive, once you get the bendy tube into the filler, just tip it up and dump it in, pretty much, and minimum spillage. :D Do prefer it to funnelling TBH.

PS: before anyone asks, the metal part of the spout has a air hole and the can a channel to let air in, so it's a smooth pour.

Thread revival time . . . my new 2020 Gear Up did not come with a spout (did they ever?) I am assuming that the "not for fuel" can is a NATO can; it sure looks like one. So I bought this spout from Amazon, claimed to be for a Euro-spec NATO can.

It looks as though it SHOULD fit; the shapes of the mating surfaces of the spout and can are the same. But there is no way it can be clamped down. The latch just won't engage. I even removed the gasket and it still can't be latched.

Am I doing something wrong, or did I buy the wrong type of spout? Or should I get out the Dremel?

Don't know about the 2020 Nato cans. I have that same spout for a 2014 can and it fits fine. I also have a different spout made by Wavian which is flex metal(SS) hose not plastic and longer I find more user friendly (also from Amazon). The short one is I just use for the lawn mower gas can. Maybe yours has a manufacturing glitch? Before you grind on yours I'd return/exchange it. Or upgrade to the longer metal Wavian spout. While you're at it I suggest also buying a package of spare gaskets. They do go bad in time.

I have to try mine as it was provided as part of the Spare Fuel can I got.

Never needed it. Nice peace of mind as there are some empty stretches in Canada and AK.

Haines to Haines junction pushed the limits but I got the low fuel light as I was descending into the Haines Junction valley and that was one of the highest MPG runs (39 something) - and a beautiful sunny day which is not the norm coming out of Haines.

There was another thread on this subject a few years ago. If you use a spout, funnel, or pump you're going to spill fuel. I use a ten liter NATO type fuel can with a Wonder siphon (I think that's the name, it's a flexible plastic hose with a shaker valve at one end, very slick, about ten USD, got mine from Amazon, I also see them in most hardware stores). No muss no fuss. Additionally, due to the impossible new safety features on new "lawnmower" has cans, this siphon is very useful.

Cookiemech - I bought the same spout off amazon and I can’t get it to clamp on the Jerry can that came on my 2020 GU.

I bought that same spout. I needed to use my disk sander to reshape the hooks on the spout. Did not have to remove much material.
Works fine now.

I can now confirm that THIS spout fits and works perfectly:

The jerry can on my 2020 GU is a Gelg, and so is this spout.

I went this route. I think it was called a “safety siphon” when I ordered mine. Works great. No spills at all.

The jerry can on my 2020 GU is a Gelg, and so is this spout.
I take back everything good I said about this spout. First time I used it, yes, it worked (nearly) perfectly. Couple of drips, no big deal. Yesterday I tried the same thing. To avoid going to the gas station more than necessary, I've been filling the jerry can at the same time as the bike's gas tank, then at about 150 miles dumping the jerry can into the bike.

Well, yesterday when I did that, I made a tremendous mess. Gas all over the tank, down over the (cool, of course) engine and onto the floor. Removed the spout, thinking that the gasket must be pinched or out of place. No. Replaced the spout. Made more mess. Said really bad words.

Used a funnel to complete the job. That worked better, not perfectly, but much better.

I don't get it. This should not be complicated. Have I suddenly become more stupid than usual? Gas was pouring out the junction between the spout and the can. The gasket is not ripped and the spout was latched securely to the can. I held the can flat with the opening up.

"Have I suddenly become more stupid than usual?"

For a fully qualified answer it is best that you ask your significant other. :lol:
