What Do EVAP Systems Do?

exhaustAsk any random person on the street what any random part of their vehicle does, and you’ve got a good chance of getting a blank stare in reaction. We’ve got automotive mechanics for that. Still, why not learn a little bit about how your vehicle works if you can? To help you with that, we will now give a basic explanation of what your EVAP system does.

Your EVAP system’s job involves getting fuel fumes out of the tank and doing so in a way that doesn’t pollute the environment. Because of that, they cause more check engine lights to turn on than almost anything else. Basically, the system moves the fumes back to the engine to be burned up before they can be dumped into the atmosphere. This keeps the environment healthy; these fumes can be very dangerous.
