Ride: 98 Ford EL Futura

Location: Launceston
TAS, Australia

Hi everyone heres the rundown.

my ride is a 98 el futura stock as a rock at 180,000kms on the clock

problem is my mrs smashed the left hand side up from the front bumper to the rear one.

ive come to find that my EVAP bead box was also smashed to bits, my abs unit still working fine but the rest well....

what im after is a new EVAP box but not exactly sure where it sits cause my mrs picked her up of the road after the smash. also since there is a huge leak in the fuel system im chewing tons of fuel.

is there anything else that i should be looking at like sensors other leaks etc

anyones help/info would be great

check the fuel lines back to the tank, as the evap box is only for pollution.

i got the evap box yesterdy so that will be installed today,

while im at it ill check that the fuel lines are all in good condition and not leaking.

if none of this sorts out the fuel issue what could it be ive already:

reset the timing,
new intake manifold gasket (not leaking a drop)
new plugs, (they were only replaced 4 weeks ago and they were black and burnt out) which gives me an indication that its getting to much fuel into the chambers and not getting all burnt properly).

new air filter, new leads, fresh service, replaced 02 sensor, could it be the map sensor not working correctly?

is there anything else i could be missing?

Thanks for your input muchly appreciated.
