Hi

After filling my 2001 sportage with fuel it will start fine but after 5 minutes it will try to stall, it also seems to be lacking power, (almost like i was towing) I need to get back to Suffolk tomorow morning (150miles)

Does anyone know what the issue may be? and if it is likely to cause the car to break down when driving.

When it tries to stall, if i give it some gas it gets better.

Any ideas?

If this is the first time the issue has arisen, you may have a bad batch of fuel or need a fuel filter change....

If you over filled the charcoal canister may be flooded.... Philip

I did overfill a bit last time i filled it up and had the same symptoms, but they cleared up untill i put half a tank in today.

Is it possible that any fuel in the charcoal canister will evaporate or drain bac over night?
Is it possible to disconect the canister?
