What is the onboard refueling vapor recovery system?

Fuel vapors are pollutants – they create hydrocarbons in the atmosphere and add to the smog choking many US cities. Your Accord has quite a few different emissions control systems, including an onboard refueling vapor recovery system. When you fill up, the vapors are stored in a charcoal canister. They’re then burned in the engine while you drive.
