P1448 MINI Meaning

The evaporative system monitoring permits the detection of leaks in the evaporative system with a diameter of 0.02 inches and up. By means of a Diagnostic Module Tank Leakage (DMTL), an electrically actuated pump located at the atmospheric connection of the evaporative canister, a pressure test of the evaporative system is performed.
During the Reference Leak Measurement, the electrically actuated pump delivers through the reference restriction. The engine-management system measures the pump's electrical current consumption in this section.
During the Leak Measurement, the electrically actuated pump delivers through the charcoal canister into the fuel-tank system. The pressure in the evaporative system may be up to 2.5 kPa depending on the fuel level in the tank. The engine-management system measures the pump's electrical current consumption. A comparison of the currents of the reference leak measurement and the leak measurement is an indication of the leakage in the tank.
