There are some rubber splices in the line going back to the tank that rot after a while. One is under the washer fluid reservoir and another down underneath by the tranny, and one more on towards the tank.

Then there's the possibility of a bad gas cap.

If you have California emmisions, that's another story.

Thanks ZeeJay! I dont think its the gas cap. I will crawl underneath and check the lings going back and see if i can find any of the splices dry rotted.
