Mine seems to only happen at altitude. Does that make sense or am I missing it all the other times? I can actually hear the gas cap venting when I'm up high, and I can smell it bad.

Long term I hope to put in a GM flex fuel crate system. That stuff is designed for this ridiculous mess.
I run Premuim because of the SC, and do not get the smell you describe... so you may be onto something...

And the OEM ones are still available from Autozone as "Duralast/Vapor Canister Part Number: VC4054".. has the same numbers and markings that the OEM ones from Mr. Yota did....
