    disconnect the line to the EVAP solenoid at the engine. follow the second fuel line with the green valve cap on it. the tank is under pressure and it's not getting released. i've had to do it a couple of times.

    yes, due to the pressurized tank, the gas just backwashes out when an air bubble tries to come back up the filler neck.

    Is it just a simple disconnect? Or am I having to remove parts and such? And thanks for the advice man.

    Car did the same shit today after sitting since friday night. Unplugged that plug but it didnt help. Opened the green cap on the evap line and unscrewed that schrader valve, I went back to the gas tank and watched the gas go down into the tank finally. Is there anyway to remove all this evap shit without messing my car up??
