EvoL: I'll be doing a full how to (or whether or not to) on the rear reservoir soon, too.
I look forward to it

Ha, why not? If you do, let me know... And save me the risk. No, that makes sense if they have 2 different functions.

[QUOTE=AntiHero;102692]The charcoal canister is an emissions piece and can be the source of hard starting (do a search for more info--lots written about it).

Most dealers won't remove it, so if you want to do it you'll have to do it yourself. Not many mods are easier than this, so long as you know which line to cap and which to vent.

Did this yesterday thanks for the guide...

Really? My dealer removed it when it was in for the first service. The head tech noticed the hard starting, asked me about it - like if I had experienced it before, and went ahead and removed it. Pretty stoked about it and now it starts no problem everytime.

Good reason for that - it's illegal to tamper with the emissions control system of any vehicle.
That being said, I remarked to my dealer when mine was in for first service that I had heard the cannister was a source for problematic starting issues. They nodded in assent that, yes, they had heard that rumor too.
When my Pani was returned from 1st service, the charcoal cannister was missing. A search of the shop didn't turn it up anywhere. Was probably stolen, no doubt, when the service tech had his back turned. I've heard they're collector items.

Is the canister explicitly a CA thing? They do it in all of them to simplify compliance?

My dealer told me it a European spec emission thing, not a US emissions regulation. Though who knows when it comes to California and their EPA rules and regs...

All North-American motor vehicles are set to CA standards as far as emissions are concerned since they have the strongest regulations.

I reject your reality and supplant my own.
