It's your fuel tank vapour evap system. Nothing to be overly concerned about, just an annoyance
Any chance of anymore detail ? Iv no idea about at that ? Thanks for the reply !It's your fuel tank vapour evap system. Nothing to be overly concerned about, just an annoyance
The charcoal petrol canister is considered a life time part. I have 217K miles on mine, no issues. Problems with this part usually happen due to improper filling of the gas tank. Never "top off" the petrol in the tank of your MINI......What happens is that topped off petrol can back fill into canister. It not supposed to do that.As long as if that's the problem it doesn't get me stranded somewhere . might just stuff it full of the charcoal from a fish tank filter at that price though . ? Joke / partly , thanks again for pointing this out . The car has 85k so prob is done .
From the link you posted earlier: "A faulty purge valve that stays open all the time can effectively cause a vacuum leak."Nearly forgot to add. It's not the introduction of vapour that causes the chugging, it's when the solenoid closes and the ecu compensates (as best it can using the reading from the o2 sensor) to the new 'lean' condition
