I don't know the advertised gas wasting figure but it will lower you're MPG's. Any time the systems are not operating as designed, it decreases efficiency. All is not lost, the "fix" may be as easy as tightening or replacing the gas cap.

probably as our fellow GURU tenspeed says 'THE GASCAP' either isn't seating well, the gasket is comprimized or the seat is blocked, somehow.

the check engine light was on got it checked and they came up with a code P1440 their part # PV484they said its a canister valve solenoid could you show me there is located do you knowb if so can you show me a picture
