Fucking Livejournal.com is banning comments on this post!!

I know, I sent them two messages about it, but they won't reply. Livejournal has the worst interface in the history of computing, but lately they have been going out of their way to make the experience even worse.

Can't use can w/o spout in place

The black plastic circular insert must be broken free from the cap. It shows this on the paper label on the front of the can, unless the price sticker is placed over it. This is unfortunately NOT a simple jerry can with just a screw-on cap. I only wish it were. It has this darned safety spout which must be used or the cap will leak all over. Now on top of that, your cap can't be unscrewed, probably because of the safety tab which must be squeezed before twisting. All this safety gear is infuriating. Try using a tin snip to cut off both ends of the black plastic safety tab. Then the can may open and you can pop out the circular insert and attach the spring safety spout. By the way, tell the gas station guys who don't know what a jerry can is, that it is named after Germany (jerry) which originated the design. It is in the dictionary, also spelled jerrican. Best wishes, and welcome to the brave new world of safety.

Re: Can't use can w/o spout in place

The same thing happened to me! EVERY TIME I try to pour gasoline in my lawnmower it spills over the side. Most of the paint has been stripped already. It's a miracle the thing didn't go up in flames or blow up because it runs hot.

People that can't read the front label should be kept far away from a fuel container. FYI a jerry can is a metal fuel can that holds 5ga 20oz of fuel. A plastic can is just called a fuel container. Again, you probably should've be using one if you can't get past what to call the thing. You gotta be smarter than the item you're using!

Amazing piece of junk EPA rules or no.
There are just no words to express how bad this design really is.
