You've heard the old expression, "He couldn't pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were written o the heel."
Well, that's me, when it comes to gasoline cans. These safety experts have made it so hard to pour gasoline (or diesel, or whatever) out of a can that I am now reduced to looking for the instructions on the heel. It's damnably sad. I bought a can last year that was complex, but I finally figured it out. I bought another one last week that seems to require three hands and a string of invective that would make a sailor blush.
Amazon to the rescue. They sell normal, old-school spouts that will actually let a fellow pour gasoline into a tank without danger of losing his Christianity. A pack of three spouts for less than $20. It's a small price to pay for a sane result. They'll be here Monday or Tuesday, and I'll refit my cans to something that should work.
