Gas purge valve
I went to autozone and had them run the check engine diagnostic and apperently there is something wrong with my gas purge vavle or the pressure in my gas tank. Is this a fix i can do myself and has anyone had to do this? Is there something i can use to try and clean this line IE something i pour in the tank like a fuel injector cleaner would go in?

there are about 87,000 miles on it. It was getting awsome gas milage, in the mid 30's on the highway, then when the light came on, it dropped about 5mpg, and now is back up a little bit. I dont know if it was just an ECU glitch and its corrected, and i just need to reset the light, or if its something anyone elase has had a problem with.
