    Yes, the handle on the bung adapter squeezes the seal outwards when articulated.... taking up the space. The fuel can adapter at the very top post should look identical to what you have?

    Yes, the adapter I have looks identical. I don't have a military can yet. I have some other jerry cans that I thought were based on NATO spec but the neck is the wrong shape/size.

    Edit: I think I have a Wavian can but think I need the Scepter. Or; my used Wavians are counterfeit and that's why it won't fit.

    Wavians are NATO style.... Scepter are the 2" round style. If you have already invested in the Wavians... instead of using the bung adapter, just run the fuel hose into the can, and let it suck while submerged in the fuel. I personally use Wavians for my normal cans (but have 55g drums for my bulk storage, of which the adapter works fine).

    There are MANY low quality NATO can knockoffs out there. I know mine are Wavian though. I think they work just fine, and are less expensive than the Sceptre style.

    Thanks. I didn't know NATO style was different than the military Scepter style. This clears it up.

    And if anyone is looking to get NATO cans at a real good price (and be authentic Wavians): http://www.roverparts.com/Parts/GJC20

    They are of course for legality reasons (they are sold without spouts) for POTABLE WATER USE ONLY.... but deduce their complete range of liquid holding capabilities for yourself . You can buy spouts separately on the same page.

    Yup, a takeoff of an old German design. Guyfang has talked about the roots of this in a previous post somewhere if you were interested in searching. But they are great cans regardless!

    I have in my garage, a WW2 Whermact fuel can, that will not only accept the Scepter fuel nozzle, but when put side to side next to a brand new Scepter can, is impossible to tell the difference. Great design. And built to last. I had a nice SS can, but when someone offered me several hundred euros for it, I had to accept. Am looking for another one.

    Is there a source for replacement parts for the barrel adapter? Mine doesn't seal/expand when inserted into a barrel

    I used a Gates 26391 hose adapter and a piece of 1 3/4 hose,gates 24028 to rebuild a donkey dingy, it took a couple different cuts to get the length of hose right

    Great, thanks! I found a part number of the actual stopper on one of the NSN sites, but it didn't really get me anywhere regarding the piece parts. I"ll try the hose adapter method next.
