    If you use the old school Jerry cans and use the old school so-called "Donkey D!ck" nozzle, chances are the seal is hardened up and doesn't seal anymore. I went on amazon and bought "Neoprene Rubber Sheet Solid 1/2" Thk x 3" x 8" Rect Strip 60 Duro" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07V9RQQFK?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details and using a 1 1/2 inch hole saw and a 2 3/8 inch hole saw managed to cut out a circle that works pretty good. I heated it up in water for a bit, smeared a little vaseline on it, and it popped right on. Is neoprene the right stuff? I don't know. Is a hole saw the right tool? Probably not. Does it work? Yes.

    If you need one, I'll be happy to send it to you for the cost of shipping in a little padded envelope. Probably a couple bucks. I have two extra, I only need one if it lasts as long as the original.

    Turned out pretty nice! I'll have to remember holes saws can cut that stuff so well.

    I'll take one if you don't mind the paperwork involved in shipping to Canada.
