I'm 1,700 miles from home and the CEL came on. Went to Auto Zone and got scanned and came back with P0455 and P0456.

I did put gas in it from a gas can where I stuck the filler neck into the capless system and it got stuck temporarily. When I road trip, I always bring a 5 gallon can with me. When I get to my destination, I empty the 5 gallon can.

Where should I be looking first? I won't be able to do much until I get home on Tuesday morning.

For the capless system... there's a special funnel/tip thingy that we're supposed to use when filling from gas cans. IIRC... it's located with the jack/spare tire foam thingy. I think you set off the EVAP malfunction warning. Hopefully it's just a simple reset.

I don't have mine, never had it as I bought this car as a rebuild. I'll have to go out to the junk yards and buy one.

Drove 1,700 miles back home with the CEL on. Still averaged 40.3 MPG.

I'll probably disconnect the negative battery cable to reset the system and see if it comes back on. No visible damage of the filler neck from what I can tell.

I'm sure it's functionally okay. But the EVAP system can be a real pain in the dick. And it may not pass inspection if it's not happy (no CEL). Fingers crossed.

Here's the page.

Do Not Insert the nozzle of a portable fuel container




We all stick the nozzle of a gas pump in there, all the time, so what's the difference?

The nozzle at the gas pump is made out of metal, where most portable fuel containers have soft plastic nozzles that will get chewed up. That's at least how the dealer explained it to me.
-Edit- Also the portable ones might have groves in the nozzle where the funnel does not. Maybe the groves get stuck on the plastic door thing?
