Evap leak is more than likely your gas cap leaking.

I dont know if you bought your car brand new but to let you well they have a recall out for the gas cap you may want to check that out could solve your problem...

Drive to West Palm Beach and drop it off with PettitRacing if you don't want to, or know how to, fix it yourself

Need to replace the engine mounts, check the exhaust system and see if any other problems persist

I myself need engine mounts that's what Mazda told me as well. My biggest issue is my steering and can't figure out why my DSC, brake light and my traction control light are on =\ I do my own work I don't trust anyone specially in Miami lol.

I agree with you, most are scams. I usually do everything myself, but i got my engine rebuilded with Rotarywerks, he does great job and is legit, not like every other mechanic down here. If you want his number pm me..
