Outboard gas tank cap

Has anyone found a replacement outboard gas tank cap that has a spout for emptying the tank? I know there are ones for regular 5 & 6 gallons gas cans.

I have not.... but you can use your existing fuel line to set up a siphon to drain your outboard tank that way. Just needs snap-on fitting to open the "other end" of the line, at the target receptacle end, and it'll get most of the gas out.

Tractor supply sells spouts by me and new vent caps to bring back the old style.

Can even find it on Amazon I bet look up ez pour replacement spout. I also have one of those shake siphon tubes with the clear tube and a copper end with a ball inside. Makes it very easy to start draining a full can.

I just use a huge funnel in a jerry can and tip the gas tank and dump it. Am I too simple?

Get a Justrite safety can with the spring-loaded cap. Put the nozzle in, squeeze the release handle, and fill with nary a lost drop.
