Hi, I had this same problem code & it was the fuel expansion tank. One of the the plastic hose fittings was broken off causing a large evap leak. It is located behind the passenger side rear wheelwell.....you also check the fuel charcoal canister located under the spare tire in the trunk, there is a drum cover that you need to remove. It will be under there. The cause is most likely the fuel expansion tank behind the wheelwell though!
here is a link to help you identify them......
