    I got some 5 gal metal blitz cans that pour slooooooow with the vent built in the nozzle. What if you tapped the top of the can opposite the spout and put in a peacock? Like the one in radiators. Has anyone tried this? If no one has I would be happy to try it on my cans. But would this make the cans not dot legal?

    They make those blitz cans with a breather valve right behind the top handle. I've got one and it works great, so if you plan to add a valve do it behind the handle so if it gets leaky there won't be any regular fuel pressure on it when its sitting.

    They are illegal now, which is why you can't find any. I'll go out and snap a pic tomorrow if i remember. Good luck getting your hands on any though.
