Also looking for a way to remove the canister. I've heard the vented gas caps can let gas smell/fumes into the car?

You can also use a fuel filter on the end of the line that goes to the tank, and some hose running to the ground in case gas ever comes out (never happened to me, but to some people. usually if you overfill the tank).
