That is helpful Raksj04, thank you.

A strange thing happened when this EVAP issue became a real problem. After refueling I was having a difficult time restarting the car. Also the engine idle would drop at stop signs, and stall out (those are very common symptoms.) What's strange is that after I changed to non-ethanol gas, those problems were greatly reduced.

The idle will occasionally falter at stop signs, but it's nothing like it used to be. Who knows,,,but changing to non-ethanol gas seems to have improved drive-ability during this particular EVAP problem.


2006 Mazda6, 3.0L v6, six speed auto (all stock, and loving it.)
