Rubber compression gasket for nozzle

Anyone know where I can get a rubber compression gasket for the flexible nozzles that go in Jerry cans.hate to see it go in the garbage if it can be fixed.

You've probably already tried, but I found that by putting the one you have back on the nozzle and soaking it in gasoline it expands and is a tight fit again. Regular use keeps it secure and usable.

Several years ago I found them at Plymouth Swap Meet for $5 each, Have not seen them since.

I went to my local hardware store and bought a small sheet of oil/fuel resistant 1/16 inch think rubber.
Then I cut out a couple of new gaskets. I think if I remember right I paid 6 dollars for 12" X 12" sheet. There are many companies you can find online and buy if from too.
