Those CCs came into being when we realized that gas vapors were being released into the atmosphere through the gas tank vent- so now, the released vapors are filtered thru the canister before venting- they have been on cars since the '70s- is it necessary to replace one? Do they reach saturation? Is yours located by the gas tank? I don't know, but it sounds suspicious to me- I would get a second opinion-
