Replace the cannister.I think thats either for emission junk or an evaporator of some sort.

Re: Fuel leaking help?

Vapor storage device, can stuffed with charcoal.
Collects off vapor from fuel tank and carb. when engine
is not running. Then when engine does run sends to manifold
via mix with air burns vapor under combustion.

You should not gas leaking out of it... unless sam is
turned upside down fuel flows thru vent system.

Check your liquid vapor seperator,location rear pass side
remove panel, see small plastic container if it's full of
fuel some how your fuel being push up thur vent system how
that would happen escapes me completely.

More logical explanation is carb solenoid open and float
stuck open or ajd. incorrectly allowing fuel backflow into
vent canister.


Vent canister is at atmosphere and manifold neg pulls
air thru it when engine is running.
