Do you stop fueling when the nozzle clicks the first time, our do you "top off" a few times?

Always stop fueling when the nozzle shuts off the first time. Continuing to fuel after that overfills, and allows the fuel to slosh up the filler neck, allowing raw fuel to enter into the charcoal canister, damaging it. Its intent is to capture the fumes only.

If this is not the case, it could be the fuel filler "flap"; these model years do not have a gas cap, but rather a flap in its filler neck.

Bucko is right about "topping off", I did that to my '00 zr2 blazer, the charcoal canister was easy enough to replace tho.

Lately I just been doing it till it clicks but I used to ALWAYS put a little bit more 😅 well now I know, any idea where this is located? Is there a difference in purge valve solenoid or canister?

I was also thinking the capless gas tank could be a problem, I had the same code come up in my girlfriends car and it was just the gas cap not sealing

Well after brutally raping my gas tank inlet after the car showed me a message saying to check the fuel inlet, i blew as hard as I could into the fuel inlet then I used the little funnel that comes with the cars and went in and out about 50 times wiped it down as good as I could and sprayed it with some WD40 and went another 50 times, cleaned it and wiped it all down as best as I could and gave it another 50 pumps lol then I unplugged my negative for a second and haven't had the light come back on since doing this yesterday
