Is the evaporative emissions equipment that important? My car is emissions exempt here in Texas, only safety inspection for vehicles 25 years and older.[/QUOTE]
Yeah what the heck the rest of us don't mind breathing your gas vapors.
Emisson systms get a lot of blame for all sorts of problems they largley don't create nor even contribute to, like if it ain't broke don't fix it. by not fixing things that aren't broke you;ll find things that aren't broke don;t suddenly become problems.
For the most part emissions systems do their thing off in the back ground and do it well.
