Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Control Diagram

The EVAP controls minimise the amount of fuel vapour escaping to the atmosphere. Vapour from the fuel tank is temporarily stored in the EVAP canister until it can be purged from the EVAP canister into the engine and burned.

  • The EVAP canister is purged by drawing fresh air through it and into a port on the intake manifold.

The purging vacuum is controlled by the EVAP canister purge valve, which is open whenever engine coolant temperature is above 70°C (158°F).

  • When vapour pressure in the fuel tank is higher than the set value of the EVAP two way valve, the valve opens and regulates the flow of fuel vapour to the EVAP canister.
