I’ve read a couple things although I think they were mostly opinions as opposed to a proven cause. One is the use of ethanol in gasoline. Although I wonder then why other foreign cars aren’t known for this problem? One I heard also was owners “topping off” when refueling, possibly causing excess fuel to enter the system. My own opinion is simply age. My car is 14 years old so I can’t really be too surprised I don’t think.

If you change one out, I would recommend getting the associated hoses / clamps to swap out while under it. I didn’t, but may do so soo we than later...

Not at all. Don't know a darn thing about the engineering, so above my pay grade so to consider modifying!

Got the new cannister in the mail the other day. Took about an hour to replace. Real easy job. I didn’t try any of the testing of the valves and all, I just went for it based on other’s experience on the forum. I’ll find out this summer whether that fixed the problem. I feel like the old one is heavier, but that may just be me thinking it’s full of gas. 4 tubes, one plug and three rust free bolts and you’re done!

This high altitude high heat truck shutting off issue is a known problem with these trucks, if you're just on vacation you need to live with it for the trip.
It is a EVAP issue.

And yet I have this issue presenting as fuel pump:

Could all of these be combinations of fuel pumps as well as evap?

I went through this ordeal this past week at hih. Smell of gas and hissing/bubbling at the cap. Tried to vent it the first day, then realized almost every 03+at the event had gas lines coming from the cover down the paint, checked with some veterans there and the consensus is leave it alone, don't try and vent. And sure enough, it didn't get worse and of course it wasn't an issue when i got home.

Only thing is don't top off the tank. I only used premium, but mainly because it became a dog at elevation and low tire psi.

I'm not in a rush to fix it as it isn't a problem now, but I'd love an update if that took care of it.

My anecdote is don't use high-test at elevation. Much less retarded ignition is needed. Only "85" research octane is used at elevation already for low-test regular. Less oxygen partial pressure means possibly/marginally incomplete burn.

I'm seeing a slight indication of this whole thing with premium fuel and elevation, thus my question.

I only ever use 85 octane.
