    You should really have searched, this has come up so many times.

    The charcoal canister vents fumes from the gas tank, into the intake to be burnt off. This is an emissions thing, but it's also an efficiency thing.

    I would recommend NOT removing it, because you would have to vent that line somewhere else, people who do this usually complain about smelling gas more often.

    Another vote for not doing it...

    but

    If you want to, just remove the canister, unplug the sensor, cap the port going into the intake. The vent running into the fender goes into your gas tank. Gas fumes from the tank are vented into the canister. You need to run it somewhere so the tank vents. Keep in mine gas vapors are flammable. Make sure you vent the line somewhere safe.

    But that's why i say not to do it

    Your not supposed to cap it. The gas tank needs to vent. I pulled my canister, and ran the leftover line in the fender with the opening in somewhat close proximity to the K&N. This way when the car is on the fumes get sucked up. When its off and in the garage, I dont smell anything anyway.
