Recently bought these cans http://www.deutscheoptik.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1718

and this spout http://www.deutscheoptik.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1032

the cans are great and have not leaked but the spout leaks when pouring


any other options for a leak free spout that works for you?

I like the Wedo style spouts



A few of mine came with the little plastic reducer which works great for kerosene lanterns and the small 1.25 gal jery cans too!



No suggestions on where to find them these days however. They come in red, blue or yellow. Mine are all red.

Nah, I have the wide mouth NATO cans and pour directly into the funnel. Works fine for me.

Deutsche optik has the good green NATO spouts in their catalog might try calling to see if they still have them also Blue ones are the same just blue for water you can get them at expedition exchange

Swiss Army Vehicles had them. The price went up, but they work!

Initially, I bought that cheap galvanized crap and the tip came off the first time I used it It ended up in the filler hose of my truck!! So, I fixed that and all seemed good. It has a small opening that works on gas vehicles so I gave it to my daughter––along with her own 20L can. Well, she was home last weekend and I was going to change the gas out for her (found out she rotated it on her own ) and it leaked everywhere! I was pissed. So, I'll be getting (another) one these and adapting it to work with the smaller gasoline inlets.

The one I linked to works great with diesel equipment and empties the can pronto!

I got one of the cheapo spouts listed in the first thread. I could see it was going to leak before I even used it so I epoxied (JB weld) around where the spout meets the lid.

It works fine –– although really really slowly. If I were to do it again I'd spend the money and get a good one with a vent.

I recently replaced all my NATO cans with the new green ones at DO. My Wedco spouts fits every can perfectly.

I have looking at these on Ebay to get a couple green ones. Looks like under $20 landed...

Another vote for these.

My SS ones from DO the OP pictured leak too. I called, and they said "oh you are the first" and didn't offer to replace them

I ordered one from that guy, along with 4 replacement gaskets, (he will combine shipping costs) and I think I was STILL under $20. Order with confidence.

I use the cheap ones from Coleman's Surplus and they have never leaked.
