NATO style can spout

Looking for a spout to fit my NATO style Jerry can. Anybody have a source or one they would be interested in selling. Stupid CARB, every CARB approved gas can I've ever used totally sucked.....either leaked all over the place, was slow as molasses or both! Thanks in advance!------------Hans

Re: NATO style can spout

Hey Hans!

A few years ago, I bought a couple of metal NATO spouts and extra seals from Cheaper Than Dirt.

Now they only have a rubber hose. But it looks like it would work fine.

Here's another

Probably the better of the two

I've used those and seen fuel leak aroud the flexible part.

I own one like the new ones on eBay. The plastic corugated part broke. I've found the best option to be a shaker siphon. You can rest the Gerry can just inside the hatch and let the siphon do it's work.

Re: NATO style can spout

I just bought a spout for my nato cans and a couple of replacement seals from British pacific about two months ago. Should be no problem.

Thanks for the info, Randy! Hey, you remember that map you gave me when me and a couple of buddies were running Goler Gulch?.......well, one of my cats chewed a hole through the middle of it! I think he thinks he's a dog (he plays fetch with me, too)! I'll have to get over to the Jawbone Canyon store and get another one, one of these days. By the way, thanks again, it would have been impossible to find our way through there without that map----------Hans

Re: NATO style can spout

That's a CARB spout.

Did you all see what it said on British Pacific's homepage?

Heavy Duty Jerry Cans
Effective 12/31 we are halting sales of all NATO cans
nationwide, due to new federal regulations.

We will continue to work on a compliant spout and we
hope to be able to offer these cans again soon.
We will keep carriers, spouts, and seals in stock,
as well as the 20L water and CARB approved 5 gallon cans.
Currently out of stock:
All spouts, all seals, all water cans.
All 20 and 10 Liter NATO: that's the end of those

Re: NATO style can spout

I would say go to an Army Surplus store, they will have what you need. I personally dont like em, I have the german style can. Has a spout attachment, but the opening is small enough to wher eyou can still fill something if you do not have the spout.
