    Thanks, and I should be able to check that. I'll need to get/rent a smoke machine, I think. I wonder if this one would actually work:

    Evap, wherefore art thou?

    An indie near me did that... replaced purge valve... code is back.

    I'll be working on this further myself, it'll be a couple three weeks before I can get to it.
