Venting plastic gas can in a car

Filling a plastic gas can almost to the top and capping it tightly will present a problem - when it is hot, the can will inflate and deform, and gasoline vapor will escape and smell. To prevent the triple effect of can deformation, gas escaping, and vapor smelling, fill the gas can almost to the top, then press on the sides to bring the level of gas up somewhat, then cap tightly. When it is cold, the can will be deformed somewhat inward, and when it is hot, it will inflate to the regular size. No gas vapor will escape.
