A few decades ago I replaced the V6 in my psuedo-street-machine with a more muscular V8. At the same time, all the smog equipment went with old the engine.
Here we are in 2021 and I’m wondering about installing a new fuel vapor canister and vacuum control valve. Given that the car only sees occasional weekend cruises, I’m wondering if its worth the money and effort.
Design / engineering questions:
- with the driving / parked ratio being so low, will the charcoal saturate while the car is parked?
- how long of a drive is required between periods of being parked to fully refresh the charcoal before it sits again?
Any educated perspectives would be greatly appreciated.
