Yes. thats why you cut a hole in the top. unlike stated above. it only takes a few seconds.

in fact one of my cans i bumped into with my mower, the mower did it for me. didn't take any time.

oh. another point, the cans with vents in the spout, well, they suck. the fuel coming out the end seas off the air.

When I push the button to "vent" gas shoots out of the nozzle regardless of its attitude. I'm glad your illegal immigrants have figured it out, but I'm still convinced these cans suck ass...

If you just push the trigger with the can level it will let the pressure equalize. If you tilt the can to pour and push the trigger when the can is pressurized then your going to make a mess. I have done this one time myself but then you learn pretty quickly and don't repeat the easy to avoid mistake again.

Also don't confuse No Spill cans with the crap ones sold at mass merchandisers. No Spill cans are not sold at Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, ect. They do sell some other push button ones that are crap.

even holding them up when you press the button and all the pressure is pushed out you can see "fumes" rusing out.

probably more of an issue with smaller cans

Regular cans put off fumes the same way it's just not contained. Even with the fumes that come out of the No Spill can when you pull the trigger your letting way less fumes then escape a pre-CARB can. You just don't see the fumes venting 24/7 out of pre-CARB cans.

Once the space in the No Spill can becomes saturated it stops generating more fumes and the atmospheric pressure stops rising. Keeping the cans out of the sun will greatly work in your favor by lowering the point of saturation and not allowing pressure to build up as much.

you could be right on the amount. although my old ones with caps didnt let it evaporate much, but because it was not quite air tight it could not pressurize. even if it costs a few cents of fuel a month, i prefer not to have cans building up pressure and becoming an explosive fire hazard.
