When pouring from rectangle shaped,
“not-vented” containers, POUR WITH THE CONTAINER
OPENING AT THE TOP.
I didn’t learn any thing else while working in an Army
Motor Pool all those years ago, at least I did learn how
to pour fuel from a 5 gallon Jeep Can without making a

to pour from this container.
of the rectangle shaped, “not-vented” containers have
the handle placed convenient for carry, but not for
in the photo above, that the opening was placed upward,
and the “carry handle” is not directly grasped.
This method of pouring makes it possible to pour
without spills and mess, even into very small funnels.
we attempt to pour from the above container with the
opening down (opposite of what we have shown), the result
will be “chug-splash, chug-splash” which guarantees
spills and mess. Pouring
incorrectly, with the opening down, will also cause the
liquid to dribble down the end of the container.
The exception with pouring from a rectangle shaped
container is when the container is VENTED.
In this case, always open the vent first, and then
pour with the spout down.
