The EVAP solenoid should open only under part-throttle steady speed driving conditions, and then not for long - only enough to "flush" fresh air through the charcoal canister and thus burn the stored fuel vapor in the intake air - fuel mixture.

Is this the EVAP solenoid you reference ?

Yup that's it
