My personal experience is that it is working great. No pressure issues and zero gas smell so far and an Arizona summer puts everything to the test
I have 2 sitting on my work bench I just need the charcoal and a little beer money you cover the mailing costs.

What does the “mod” look like? Which valve gets drilled and where? ....this question may answer itself momentarily. I’m pulling mine off today to open it up.Fact #1 - Even with a 100% correctly functional factory canister it is not uncommon this time of year (summer) to still notice some gas smell. The factory vents gas fumes through the charcoal and out of the canisters bottom into the air. The demand is such this time even with new charcoal the canister cant keep up.
Fact #2 - You should have zero pressure at the gas cap if your canister is working/modded correctly.
To be 100% CLEAR the MPG increase from a canister mod is an LCP joke. Do not expect any increase in MPG just a trouble free canister for life.@LandCruiserPhil I noticed on another thread, you commented about "Still getting 16.8MPG." Wondering when you rebuilt your canister, if you drilled out the check ball or just made sure it was operational? This looks like a good rainy day garage project and I wouldn't mind seeing a bit of increase in mpg's as a result of the rebuild. Although that isn't my main purpose for rebuilding.
My version is simply smarter, faster, and definitely much better looking! Wait we still talking about the charcoal canisters? LOLTo be 100% CLEAR the MPG increase from a canister mod is an LCP joke. Do not expect any increase in MPG just a trouble free canister for life.
Yes as the originator, I drilled out the check ball.
In the past I rebuilt my canister but recently the problem popped back up and once I experience a problem 3 times I change directions and look for a final fix. The canister has 3 lines - 1 - comes straight from the tank with a one way valve at the canister < the problem 1 - goes to the VCV...forum.ih8mud.com
