    Wonderful satudaymorning to you all,

    I was wondering if any of you have ever replaced the evaporative emission hoses on a 659cc turbo, as required by the service manual once every 8 years.
    If so, did you use genuine Daihatsu hoses or just generic fuel hose.

    Nope, been to a Daihatsu dealer for my 8 years inspection and they did not do anything. Guess its not as important? :D

    I get a whiff of petrol on start up, soon stops though, and I wondered if that could be to do with this system?

    I think there's a carbon canister below the battery, does that get 'full'?

    Previously, I found one of the hoses that went down there (somewhere...) was disconnected. I bodged it to the other part with a rawl plug (yes, really, only bit of tube I had to hand and that plastic is pretty inert...) and that worked a treat, car ran better and used a lot less fuel
