I thought the USMC cans had integrated spouts? What does the spout look like that you are looking for?

Hi MAtt, I have never seen one. I was told that they are similar to the regular type,except made for the narrow hooked openings on USMC fuel cans.Please let me know if I am wrong.Thanks Ed

Ed,

I can't say if you are wrong. This is the first I've heard of them. Makes sense when you explain it that way. I'll keep a look out though. Good luck.

I cannot remember one for the USMC cans, but maybe one was made for the German cans with a similar spout. Robin would know!
