Ditch the can!

Undo the can with mount.
Remove the vapour valve.
Get a small piece of tubing and attach the hose that comes from the tank to the vent line you take out of the charcoal can.
Remove the hoses that come out of the throttle bodies
Cap the nipples on the throttle bodies.
Toss the canister at Al Gore.

I think that's it, but it has been a while and I am just going by memory.
