HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST SPOUT BASE CAP FOR YOUR GAS CAN

EZ-POUR base caps and solid base caps

If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that the new gas can spouts are awful. You finally ditched the new spouts and invested in a universal replacement spout and vent kit for your old gas can, but you’re not sure how to make the spout fit properly. Don’t worry! The experts at EZ-POUR® are here to help. Here’s our guide for how to choose the best spout base cap for your gas can.

FINE THREAD GAS CANS

For gas cans that need a fine thread cap, such as Blitz (gas, kerosene, and diesel), Briggs & Stratton (early models), Essence, Gott, and Rubbermaid gas cans, our black base caps are the perfect fit. You can find black base caps in every spout kit. Do you also need a replacement cap to store your gas can? The solid black base cap is available for purchase online separately.

COURSE THREAD GAS CANS

For gas cans that need a course thread cap, our yellow base caps will be your best bet! Use the yellow base cap for Blitz, Briggs & Stratton (later models), Eagle, Igloo, Midwest Can (gas, water, diesel), and Scepter gas cans. They are also compatible with our Chilton, Jerry can, No Spill, and Racing Jug adapters. By not needing a different base cap for each adapter, you save time and money! Just like the black variety, these are included in every spout kit purchased. When it’s time to store your gas can, our solid yellow base cap will keep your gas can closed.

WEDCO THREAD GAS CANS

If you find that our yellow and black base caps are not properly fitting your can, you may need our grey base cap. These base caps are available to order separately on our website! They also have a coarse thread but are more suitable for other gas can styles. Use these for Briggs & Stratton (later models), Midwest Can (metal jerry can), Stancan, Tee Pee, and Wedco gas cans. Our solid grey base cap will get the job done when you need to store your can. View our application chart to see when you might need to use this color base cap.

STORING YOUR METAL CAN

When storing metal cans with 1 3/8″, 1 1/2″, or 1 3/4″ openings, our solid red base cap is the best choice. The durability of our products is enough to meet all your daily application needs. You’ll feel confident that the tight seal will prevent any leaks from occurring. Easily store your gas can in the garage or shed, or place it in the car or the back of your truck.
