Default gas leaking from evap canister?

I have a engine light on for evap system leak. I noticed gas leaking from the canister drain tube? Is this normal when the canister is toast? Or is there some other problem? I removed the two vacuum lines going to the canister to see if fuel is come in from there but they were dry.

The car is a 95 accord ex. Any info would help. Thanks

if i had to guess, maybe it's not purging the vapors as it should and they are building up and condensing in the canister. I think there should be a purge solenoid that may be need to be tested out.

So have found some info on removing the canister all together. Do i just plug the line from the tank and remove the canister?

I suppose you could do that since it's OBDI, but I have never done that. Your mileage may suffer some, but I can't tell you for sure. I would diagnose it properly and repair the problem before removing it. test out the purge solenoid and see if it's bad. Maybe that will fix everything.

Which one is the purge? The one on the tank or the one by the canister?
