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.

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.

@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.

If anyone needs a charcoal canister done I am doing a couple tomorrow morning. All you need to bring is the charcoal and my fee is a six pack of beer. Call me if you want to come over. Starting about 8am. 520-483-8599

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.

Yes as the originator, I drilled out the check ball.

My version is simply smarter, faster, and definitely much better looking! Wait we still talking about the charcoal canisters? LOL
