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.

If you aren't smelling gas it's ok to wait on replacing it.
