Evaporative Control (EVAP) System

Fuel Tank
The fuel tank stores the fuel. Inside the tank, there is a float that signals the computer systems and/or fuel gauge as to how much fuel is in the tank. On newer vehicles, the fuel pump, fuel, filter, and fuel pressure regulator may also be housed inside the fuel tank.

Canister Purge Valve
The canister purge valve allows stored fuel vapors in the containment canister to be recycled back into the engine combustion process when necessary. More >>

Key Component - Charcoal Canister

In order to prevent fuel vapors from escaping into the atmosphere, a brick of charcoal inside the charcoal canister collects the vapors and later purges them so they can burn in the combustion process. More >>
