Check your filler breather system, small hose next to the big one (going to tank from filler) open remove hose clamps, blow out the small hose with comp air. Hope this helps.

I believe your evap vapor canister vent valve is broken. It's a 40$ part, connects from the tank fumes to the evap canister. A solenoid goes bad and doesn't allow the valve to open.

$40 part but the dealership wants $600 to replace!
