Vent For Plastic Fuel Cans
R. E. Dickinson, Theodore, Alabama: "My neighbor came up with this vent for plastic fuel cans. After draining and drying the inside of the can, drill a hole in location as per the drawing using a 1/2-in. drill bit. Invert the can and shake out any drill cuttings (that's why you need a dry can). Push a 3-ft. length of wire through the drilled hole and then out the filler spout hole.
  "Remove the valve cap and core from a new tubeless tire stem and thread it onto the end of the wire. Pull the stem out through the vent hole.
  "To vent the can while dispensing fuel, I simply take the cap off the stem."
