Default Have an 80, Smell fuel vapor from the engine bay? Try this

This is a common problem and it seems to be the charcoal canister saturating with fuel. I learned through this process that topping off is not a good thing to do as well.

The OEM Charcoal canister is about $250 with our discount. This is a cheaper solution some on Mud have tried

Yea - pretty cool. I haven't noticed any bad smells, but the back pressure from my tank is fairly high.

I installed an aftermarket canister last weekend (along w/ my LANDTANK Sleeve!) and when I filled up on Thursday, ABSOLUTELY ZERO VENTING from the gas cap!!! Very easy install; however, I was not able to get one of the bottom bolts of the bracket back in with the larger canister. Shouldn't be a problem...I'll take it knowing that I'm not building pressure any more. Very nice!

I just now installed the one linked to from Mud. I'll add some pictures next.

It is considerably larger in diameter. It fits, but like Romer I did not use the lower bracket because it seemed like too much grief to get the lower bracket on the canister and then place it all back in location. (Tip: remove the straps from the body bracket by removing the three nuts facing the engine block.)

You will need something in the order of a 2.5 x 1/4 (or 3/16) bolt to clamp the bracket to the new canister.

Also, after reading the Mud posts, I modified the dish at the bottom by drilling drain holes. I would have liked to pull the dish off to see how the vent worked but did not want to risk breakage. At least now it will not hold water.

1. About how close the bracket closes on OEM Canister (the ends touch when tightened).
2. About how close the bracket closes on replacement aftermarket Canister.
3. Bottom of replacement aftermarket Canister as delivered.
4. Bottom of replacement aftermarket Canister as drilled for drainage.
5. Replacement aftermarket Canister installed showing 2.5 inch bolt.

I called around on this...

Autozone and Pep Boys are ~$36 on this canister, and Checker and Adv Auto are ~$54. All need to special order it. I put in the 'request' as being for a '92 Pontiac Grand Prix with a 3.1 v6.
