Do you recall when the jet was a short length of brass you could bend to the desired aim point? That was a long time ago.

**Update on my evap leak: the check engine light just came back on. So, the new gas cap didn't solve the issue. I think the fuel filler part itself needs replacing, or resealed somehow.
So, back to the dealership next weekend. Visit # 5
Has anyone pressure tested the gas cap? Should be able to pressure test the gas tank too.
Sounds like your mechanics are throwing stuff against the wall to see what sticks.
If that makes sense. I'm stuck in the middle with Mitsubishi Corporation cheaping out, and a Dr. Jekyll Mr Hyde dealership
Every time you drive your car, a slight vacuum is applied to the fuel tank to verify that it is air tight. If that test fails, you get the code you are seeing.
While a loose or poor-sealing gas cap is the most common cause of this code, it's not the only possible cause. A crack in a line or a bad seal somewhere in the fuel tank system can also cause this. A friend of mine had to replace the entire fuel tank assembly in his Hyundai to fix this problem. There was a hard line molded into the fuel tank that had developed a crack.
Finding the cause in your case might require more detective work, but starting with the gas cap was the most sensible approach.

I agree with topfuel. The gas cap can cause that code but is not the only cause. But the internet usually points to gas cap first. It could be anything between the gas cap to the tank, evap/charcoal canister, vent solenoid, purge solenoid,the lines that go up to the engine? The only evap code I've had so far was for the solenoid because the wiring was damaged either at the solenoid itself or the wires dangling near the rear bumper cover. If your filler neck is rusted out already use the phone and try to see if a wrecker in bc or our here will help you out. It isn't a part that is going to be worth pulling to most people so keep that in mind if you're only looking to spend $5.
I just saw you mentioned smoke test. That'd be the second thing to try if a gas cap didn't work. Beats throwing random parts at it like Canadian tire.

My EVAP leak issue has FINALLY been resolved: after the dealer did a smoke test, they found out that the evap hose was loose, and thus causing some fumes to leak out. And that was setting off my 'check engine light'. So they tightened the hose back up, and we're back in business!
I figured it wasn't the gas cap, after the new gas cap did not do anything to alleviate my issue.
Thank goodness. Done and done. Only took 15+ hours waiting at the dealer.
(and 0 charge. but I fight it, politely yet resolutely)
Whew! Glad it was finally figured out.
