I've done the search, and found no answer so I'll pose the question:
What portion, if any, of the evaporative emissions system are we permitted to remove on '99+ cars?
I'm coming from a '96, where the only evap items are under the hood, seeing these hoses and (purportedly) problematic & heavy charcoal boxes near the fuel filter makes me think they should be removed.
One link on this site mentioned the looping of some lines in/out of the tank and filler neck (and only on '99s) but my recent memory of that area doesn't recollect there being this/these lines to loop. Unless they were referring to the larger lines from the top of the tank that appear to go down to this undercar area.
Any guidance or a reference I could look at?
Pictures of what others have done for both areas (filler/tank & fuel filter area)?
