      My EVAP hose showing it's age, looks brittle and rubs off black when you touch it. However, I am not getting any codes.

      So, should I replace it now or wait for a code?

      While am at it, should I replace the PCV? Still on the original.

      Ford service manager said not to change unless I started getting codes. Any thoughts?

      Finally got around to swapping it. Should not have waited so long. A lot of subtle problems have vanished!

      The big one was the elimination of hunting while in cruise control and going uphill. Smoother acceleration and it seems quieter.

      And it seems to be getting a bit better gas mileage.
