Hi. I have a 2002 Elantra with about 80,000 miles. Late last night I filled my tank up with gas, then the next day gas was leaking from the charcoal canister. I know that the charcoal canister is only suppose to have fumes going through it. I'm just wondering how did it get overflown with gasoline. It was also a pretty hot day. I don't know if the temperature had to do anything with the gas or vapors to expand or anything. Maybe the heat exacerbated the problem? I would really appreciate any advice. Thanks.
