Mitsubishi Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 6 months ago

A small vapor leak is one of the hardest things to find on an EVAP system and usually requires the use of a smoke machine. This smoke machine hooks up to the EVAP service port and fills the system with smoke and then you have to look carefully all over the system where that smoke comes out and there you have found the issue. Also the use of a shop scanner that can do an active test on the performance of all the components in the system. You can have anything from a leaking fuel cap , hoses and or the canister itself leaking internally.
