    The vapor cannister IS hooked up to the fuel tank, but you are correct, it should not be sucking in raw fuel. You *might* get some accumulation, but I don't think even thats normal.

    Perhaps the charcoal filter at the base of the cannister is plugged, forming suction on the cannister purge line. I know in most applications that filter can be changed, you might want to check it out.
