I came up with this after numerious failed attempts to use the clamp style spouts for the plastic Scepter jerry cans. I also wasnt interested in the ~$30 price tag on the fancy ones Scepter makes. I posted this over on ttora over a year ago, iv been using this thing regularly since. No issues at all.
Took some measurements and headed to Home Depot. Came back with the following parts; 2 PVC couplers, and a brass nipple. I had the hose already along with the hose clamp and epoxy. I went this route so I would have something to grab onto when tightening, and not to cover the little vent hole.

Hose: 5/8" OD?
After assembling with fuel resistant epoxy, I assembled the brass fitting and hose.
And the test...

The spout is still working fine. I added a big o-ring to the threads so I didnt have to screw it in so far. One of my can's it gets really tight. This solved it and keeps it front leaking if you leave it lose.
o-rings came from an old oil filter.
