Oh, woops, not sure how I missed that.
Yeah! I may go that route.If you watch Brucey's video he basically says you can create your own kit cheaper and maybe even better.
In the Gen 6 if I understand correctly they moved the vent opening to just under the height of the gas cap.
This was the extremely frustrating part. They checked the code and then said they have to drain the canister. It will be an hour worth of labour and the issue will be resolved. 15 min after it was done, I try to pump gas and it won’t take so I call them back and he’s like “yeah it will need a new canister” I’m thinking “WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME THAT WHEN I WAS THERE TO SAVE AN HOUR OF LABOUR!”It's unsettling when you take your ride to a dealer to resolve a problem, the techs can't figure it out, but you can.
And because of the experience & knowledge in this forum, I keep reading and learning about Subarus each time I visit.
Mind me asking how fast you were going? I ask because there's a wide ford near me that I do drive through fairly often. It's not often too deep and I do tend to go steady but occasionally if I've got the kids with me I may step it up a bitSo I stupidly drove through a very deep puddle during heavy rain yesterday. I guess the puddle was 12” deep.
Both. I know I need a new canister cause the current one us pooched. As walker said there’s more than just a canister inside of it. So I’ll get my mechanic to do it. Then my neighbour and I will do the LP ourselves.So are you going to go with the LP Adventure bypass or take it back to the dealer and have them fix it ? After reading this thread I am going to plan on just doing the bypass and being done with it.
The speed limit is 50km/h but knowing it was a big puddle, I slowed it to about 40km/h. Enough that the splash was above the windows.Mind me asking how fast you were going?

I'm new to Subaru but tbh I'm a little surprised this is an issue. On all my cars I've always been mindful of the intake and with the Subaru the position of the plugs but this is concerning.
Thank you for the link. This thread was one of the first ones that I read up on when I was sitting in the dealership. I was pretty freaked out when I read it was $900 (I suspect USD and I suspect in 2019) so I’m freaking out thinking it’s a $1500 lesson.Replacing the evap cannister will hopefully take care of everything. My experience:
I'm getting the P1449 code for an Evap issue. My local garage did a visual check, reset the code, and it came back on the next morning. I suspect the filter is wet (drove through some relatively deep water). I talked to the the mechanic this morning: he told me to take it to the dealer because...www.subaruoutback.org
