Check Engine Light Due to EVAP System Fault on Toyota Sienna

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

This is in kilometers not miles. The error was coming up so I just cleared it with my obd2 reader. It comes up once in awhile but I just clear it. No real issues so far.
Dealer to replace canister, I suggested new gas cap as well. Cheap fix
