Question

Need ID help on gas jug with wide opening


I have a gas jug that has two very wide openings. I got it as a giveaway. One opening takes a huge nozzle (ie not the kind that can fit in a car tank) but it is made of very thin plastic and the lip that holds it in place has cracked away. I want to purchase a nozzle for it but every nozzle I found is for a smaller opening. Does anyone recognize this type of gas can/jug? I want to purchase a car type nozzle for it.

You don't need a nozzle, use a funnel.

Would a diesel nozzle work?
I played musical nozzles for years and finally gave up and bought an expensive metal can with a flow control handle and it works great. Son bought me the same type for mu tractor fuel. This summer I will be cutting up probably a dozen old plastic cans for the dump.

Pre- unleaded gas jug maybe.

Wait a minute! Is that one of those caps that has the nozzle pointing inwards & you just have to flip it?

That's what I do when fueling my tractor since being forced to use the new gov't mandated gas jugs.

Well yes you're supposed to unscrew the cap and take out the nozzle and then turn it around and put it through the cap. Much like the more recent enviro spectre gas cans but it's non enviro. The nozzle lip is breaking off so I can't leave it in or use it, it's just going to flake off in the can/jug. It's over 2" wide, I've never encountered an opening on a gas can this wide.

The funnel and siphon ideas are pretty good I'll probably try one of those if I can't find out what type of style it is.
