Check engine light came on several weeks ago and there was no change in the driving performance. Came home checked code (forgot number) but is was for the fuel tank evaporation, gas cap and several more items. Reset the error and checked the gas cap. 3 weeks later same problem.

At the time I was driving at the most once a week when the light came on. Thinking that one of the sensors or the pump may not be working properly, I opened my drivers door every time I went to the garage. Heard the pump running each time and it seemed to clear up. Now that I am driving a little more no more codes have appeared.

Fingers crossed.

Mine did that a month ago the code was P0456. It would go away and come back every time I filled up my tank. I took it to LR, they diagnosed it the purge valve was leaking. mine was covered under warranty

When the check engine light came on, LR told me it was a carbon filter that had to be replaced. The LR is falling apart and only 24,000 miles.

Bill is right. Do not top off the fuel. Overfilling will damage the EVAP system leading to expensive repairs on any make of car. When filling and the nozzle shuts off fuel delivery stop filling. That leaves enough room for the EVAP system to breath and filter the gas/diesel vapors through the charcoal canister system.

Your comment is very interesting to me, I did not know about this. I usually add additional fuel at the pump after it ‘clicks’ to round up to the nearest dollar. For example, if I’m at $28.83 I’ll add until it makes it to $29. It’s not much, but can so little extra fuel cause damage?
