"I took this to France during their fuel shortage back in October, and this has to be the best way to fill a car from a jerry can. Much easier (and less messy) than syphoning, or sloshing fuel into a funnel. The plastic end pushes on, and is quite a good fit. It did leak a bit the first time I used it, but it seems to be ok now. Reading the other reviews, some people have found this to be a problem, but I'm sure it would be easily solved with some wire around the join to make a tighter seal. It is well worth £5.99, and I am considering buying another."
"Wish I'd paid more attention to the reviews before I wasted my money ! I kept spilling petrol on my first attempt at using it. I kept checking the gasket and checking the funnel was on tight but still the petrol was everywhere. Then I noticed the hole in the funnel. Why the heck is there a hole in the funnel ?! It must be to let air in, but did they ever think petrol might come out !"
"The flexible hose is only a push fit so could become detached and possibly fall into a fuel tank.
This happened to me when refuelling an aircraft. This grounded the aircraft for 4 days and cost me approx £100 to get it extracted. The flexible spot should be firmly attached as it is on other spouts, as I subsequently found out.
"Very poor fit to the jerry can, these funnel kits should come with a seal for the can end of the funnel, similar to the one in the jerry can lid.... No seal = petrol leaking out. I thought I may have thrown the seal out with the packaging, but after checking found no seal. I will probably make one out of something rather than return the funnel kit.
No problem with the rubber spout if it is pushed on far enough, and I am sure a jubilee clip fitted around it would solve the problem for other users."
"Have returned for refund-Screw fix customer service were great.
Metal part fits well to can but rubber hose at end is loose and comes off very eaisley. When trying to pour 20 Litres of fuel (heavy) into the car it came off the end covering the side of the car in petrol. It really should be a secure lock fit. The anti vacuum vent hole in the side of the funnel also presented a problem as you need to get the funnel into the petrol hole fast else petrol leaks from this too. This coupled with the poor design of the rubber hose was a bad combo. Only Gave 1 star as no option for 0 star. Not for me."
"The seal between the can & the spout is very poor even with the locking lugs pushed home firmly & after losing quite a bit of petrol each time I used it I no longer bother with it! I find the most reliable method is a filtered funnel & only fill the Jerry can 2 thirds full(otherwise if too full-to begin with petrol runs from the lip down the can). The other problem I had was the black rubber nozzle on the end split at the end of the concertina section nearest the green metal attachment......................& you cannot replace these without buying a complete new funnel kit.Perhaps I rested too much weight on the funnel kit when filling up?Be careful.I tried to repair it with amalgamating & self fusing silicone tape with no luck. Put your £6 into a good funnel or another 20 Ltr Jerry can?"
"The funnel has a hole in the side to allow air to enter and speed the flow of fuel. The issue is that the hole lets the fuel out as well, which is a waste and make a mess. The rubber spout is also a poor fit which adds to the leakage!"
"Tried three of these, on all of them the flexiblepart (which you push on) with it's internal filter does not fit the metal spout tightly enough and fuel comes back up through the gaps between metal and rubber. there seems to be some back pressure caused by the filter, on other jerry cans this filter is located at the can connection end of the spout.
