Check Engine

I need some help diagnosing this problem. The check engine light would turn off, then come on again after like a week or so.

This is really coincidental, my CEL just came on and I got a similar code.

190F08: Fuel Tank ventilation system fault.

I cleared it and the CEL hasn't came back. I've been getting terrible gas mileage like 16MPG. Are you also getting bad MPG or any other symptoms?

I get 27.9mpg and the only thing I really feel is that the car is a bit more jumpy, if that makes any sense. I haven't tried clearing the CEL because it'll just come back on again.

That's odd your gas mileage seems fine then. Odd, yeah I cleared my code and it hasn't came back. CEL is gone too. But my MPG are so bad, I can't do 16MPG haha. I'm taking it into my Indy shop on the 10th.

Well ended up not taking it in since they said not to bother since the CEL was gone. Still getting bad gas mileage but not as bad as before. Averaging around 22MPG. Not really sure what is causing it.
