If the little cylinder is plugged.... the tank will not relief, and a vacuum will be generated. Cure is to either remove the little valve.....or full removal of the CC.
Thanks, I will look at that to see if that is/was the cause. I experienced it again a couple of days ago but without the fuel tank pressure. I will probably just remove the charcoal canister in the end.
