This device is responsible for periodical<br> purging of gasoline fumes from fuel system<br> back into intake mainfold. I'm not sure that<br> it applies only to the activaded charcoal <br> canister or entire fuel system including tanks,<br> but it works more or less like that.<br> It is located on the driver's side, under hood<br> and it has 'MOT' label on it.<p>pschp-227.man.polbox.pl

I think that the purge valve's function is something like leading the fuel vapour into an active charcoal filter which cleans the fuel steam before it enters the cylinders. <br> <br> But I'm not sure about this at all. Can someone please correct or verify my statements? I'm kind of curious myself...<br> <br> /Daniel<p>violett-10.nada.kth.se
