2.5L Evap Canister ?

I had a problem with my evap canister on a 85' s10 2.5L. The thing was soaked with liquid gas. I checked the vacuum lines goin to the canister both have good vacuum and were dry. I disconnected the vent tube that runs to the canister from the gas tank and let the engine run no gas was coming out of it. I dont know how it filled up with gas. Myquestion is can you just plug the vent line coming from the tank, I know this would raise the pressure in the tank especially with a return fuel system, or is there any other way to eliminate the canister completely? Has anyone else ever had this problem occur?

Sounds like the purge system isn't working.....
Don't think you would want to plug the vent line...the tank needs to "breathe" or you will create a vacuum.
