1998 Ford Falcon • 260,000 miles

On a hot day a strong smell of petrol in the area of the carbon canister left front wheel
there are no visable petrol leaks under the bonnet or at the canister

I feel that the canister is saturated with fuel, the purge valve may be faulty, I would get the vent system checked before replacing the canister as if not it may just fill up and fail again
