I totally need to do this. My arb compressor sits right there with the evap canister like upside down underneath it lol somehow hooked up.

Did this put your cel on?

Not directly. I've had codes come up from system to rich or lean from time to time (can't remember which one), but it usually goes away or I just reset it and it stays off for a while. I honestly don't even know if that was from the EVAP delete or if it just happened to be something that has started happening within that time frame. Test it out and see. The mod is super easy to test out. Just swap the vent lines and see if it pulls a code. If not, ditch the canister. If it does, then just put the line back.

Bringing this back to the top...
I'd love to be able to do this to clear up some room for a fuse panel or air compressor. So the theory is that it's easy to remove/reinstall when needed. That's all well and good that the evap setup is easy to remove/replace....but if I've installed a compressor or fuse panel setup in that location, those aren't going to be easy to remove/replace when it comes time for smog check. (eq., our bi-annual smog check here in CA)

Dumb question, I'm sure....but when it comes to smog techs, I'm assuming this is one of those components that they are specifically looking to see is present in our engine bay? It's not a matter of just passing the sniffer and we're good to go without this right? Or are you guys finding that they don't look for it?

I'm sure you'll fail if it's not there.

I've still got my charcoal can and I also have a compressor and aux fuse box. Plenty of room in the engine bay for all of it.

Yeah, that's my assumption as well.
I do have a decent amount of extra space on the passenger side, since I ditched the cruise control module. Should be plenty of room for my compressor. I also have one of 4ripcord's fuse panel platforms laying around. It's just a damn tight fit against the hood, with it mounted above the evap setup.

Keep us updated if you get any codes. People ask me all the time, and I don't remember getting any codes from it. Still don't have any codes that are related to it, but I want to verify with others too.
I drove about 70 miles after removal and no code so far.

Saved for me to do it in a couple days. Probably will hold onto the canister to see about codes and all but will probably toss it. Phessor and I dont have smog checks so wont need to reinstall if it all works out well.

Thinking about this on a 2nd gen Tacoma. But my tank vent is 3/4", and it needs that diameter to take gas. Do you guys have a separate vent for filling the tank?

Sadly my charcoal canister is getting clogged and preventing fuel from going in (pump shuts off every .1 gallons.

Sounds like you should just vent to the atmosphere like I ended up doing. Do the FATS system in case if a roll over. Keeps it simple and easy.

Did this and ended up with a P0440. Not too concerned about it since we no longer have smog testing in WA.
I wonder if there is any way to simulate the signal to the sensor to prevent the CEL. Im going to do this to see if mine will throw a light or not. I live in Michigan so I don't need to worry about SMOG either. However, I just got my CEL off after it being on for a year for a transmission solenoid and I enjoy it being off, at least if it comes on now I know I probably messed something up LOL.

I read somewhere that you can put a diode in on the pigtail to simulate the resistance needed to not throw a code
