Has anyone put vents in their gas cans?

Found this video, wondering if anyone has tried it?

Pretty cool.

I saw a thread elsewhere that had a link for an actual vent/plug with cap. Drill hole, pop in, done.

I'll just stick with my controversial No Spill cans. Not trying to start that debate again, but works best for me.

Been using 2.5 gal No Spill for several years. They work great for the hand tools but for some reason our guys don't like the 5 gal No Spill for the mowers.

I just drill the most smallest pin size hole with bit just enough to allow vapors to escape. Otherwise the heat/ cold air contractions make plastic cans collapse continuesly.

Check out Jasonslawncare's picture thread in that forum. He did a can or two with some of the aftermarket plugs. I think he has several pics in there to see.
