in the other forum they suggested to run the vac line direct to the gas tank. that will place the whole tank under vac. when fuel is getting sloshed around it will get sucked into the hose, that is raw fuel, and your engine will run rough or stall. the evap. canister only collects vapours. Dont mount it on its side either, the filter must be on the bottom. Find a way to get it working right. The canister will also purge itself occasionally with fresh air from the bottom through the filter. The fresh air is drawn up through the filter so if it is oily around the bottom of the filter the oil will also get sucked up
