My 15 year old suburban pops a CEL about every hundred miles or less for Evap emissions etc. I looked it up and there is some kind of sensor or valve on top of the fuel tank.. i never planned on fixing it, so i keep a small scan tool in the glovebox and just remove the CEL so it doesnt aggravate me.

I have had this vehicle for a couple of years.. it was very lightly maintained so i have been running cleaners here and there (Redline, Techron etc)...always using top tier gas etc. Nothing ever changed that CEL.

I bought the little Gumout Expert Regane that was on clearance at AZ a couple of months ago and have used it two tanks back to back.

The CEL hasnt came on in either of those tanks.. and i usually get at least 2 or 3 CELs per tank..

maybe coincidence but very rarely has anything fixed itself on my vehicles.

Adding something to your gas won't fix the purge valve or any other defective part since the gas never touches those parts.
