    Pouring from a Jerrycan - spout advice?

    Title says it all really. In the past whenever I used the supplied MOD spout for a Jerrycan as much fuel landed up on my shoes as down the tank. Yes the nozzle had a good seal/gasket. I remember seeing funnels with flexi pipe but IIRC they are quite large. Has anyone any other...
