I switched all the spouts on my cans to the EZ Pour just before the last hurricane hit. It actually made it possible to refuel my truck from the cans.

Of course my Ford truck needs a special funnel to get that stupid little flap in the fuel fill to open.

I wish the government would stop caring about my safety so much.

I bought a pack of vents a few years ago, just drill a hole, size as directed, and push the vent in they work fine.
