Good evening, I hope you are doing great. My name is***** just saw that you were still waiting on an expert so I would be happy to assist you with this.

Do you ever smell fuel in the car? It sounds to me like the evaporative canister is about full. Usually when this is the case, you will notice the smell of fuel linger after start-up, and it will also take a very very long time to fill it up

How much would this be?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
If I do it myself
Audi Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 3 months ago

Okay the I believe the canister is ready to be replaced. The labor to replace it is two hours, so if you do it yourself that will save you about $300 dollars or more in service fees. The parts will depend on where you get them, the canister is available at most part stores.

Even for my year ?
Audi Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 3 months ago

Yes, I just checked and it is readily available. If you have a Napa parts store nearby they will be able to get it for sure, here is the part link:
