IS IT NECESSARY TO REPLACE THE CHARCOAL CANISTER AT 60,000 MILES AS RECOMMENDED BY THE CAR'S MANUAL
1993 Toyota Corolla

I have a 1993 Toyota Corolla 1.8 DLX with the mileage at 87,500 and I noticed that the car's manual recommends replacing the charcoal canister in the engine compartment of the car every 60,000 miles. The car's engine appears to be running fine so I am wondering if this is a case of "if it's not broken, don't fix it". Plus, a OEM replacement canister will cost approximately $275.00 so I am wondering if this is a necessary investment in the car. I do see where it mentions that fuel efficiency can be affected by this part. Any help on this greatly appreciated.
