Today, I drive down to Costco, to fill my trunk with 50 gallons of gas:
When, lo and behold, I smell strong gas fumes while driving.
So, I pull over, and open the trunk, and what do I see?
Yet another plastic spout cap broke along the perimeter:
So, I stop by Lowes to pick up a replacement 5-gallon portable storage can:
Resigning myself to transferring the gas from the old can to the new
can, lo and behold, I find that the new cap seemingly fits the old
threaded neck, yet, the converse isn't true.
The old spout doesn't seem to fit the new can's threaded neck. Huh?
I ask: How can it be that the new spout fits the old can, but that
the old spout doesn't fit the new can?
One reason it matters is that I have more than a few of these
one or two year old gas cans where all the spouts break the same!
