    I needed a scepter gas can spout but didn't want to pay the Amazon premium of $20
    Figured I could make my own.

    I noticed the threads inside the can spout opening:



    Went to the hardware store and picked up a 2 inch male adapter, 2 x 1/2 threaded bushing, a barb fitting and some fuel hose..






    Glued the fittings together, threaded the barb fitting using yellow teflon rated for fuel:



    Voila:

    **dont forget to use yellow teflon at the 2" male threads**

    only thing I encountered was a small drip during fueling .. and that is because i didnt teflon the threads on the 2" male adapter.

    Looks perfect! That's how I did mine, plus teflon. Used a seal off a used oil filter around the base as well :cheers:

    what the hell?

    so to avoid spending $20 on a part that works perfectly, you spend $18 for parts, and spent an hour working on it, so you could have a dripping product?

    Step one: unscrew spout.
    Step two: add teflon
    Step three: screw spout.

    Anything else?

    I do plumbing on the side, so I had a few fittings laying around.

    Only thing I had to go pick up was fuel hose.

    Yeah, NPT fittings have to have it. Come to think of it I may have used gasoline frindly cement on the fitting. I remember welding the PVC that way.

    Does it flow well without any vent system (none that I can see anyway)?

    Wait...is that little hole the vent? Looks partially blocked by the PVC male fitting.

    Nice...thanks. Any thoughts on what would work for a cap on the end of the fuel hose?

    I use a PVC end cap. Works well, I don't transport using it. Only around camp when I'll be accessing the gas multiple times.
