IIRC the gas that goes to the charcoal canister is gas vapor from the carburetor or gas tank and sends them back to the engine to get burned. Most Charcoal canisters should be replaced at some point (which no one really does), if you remove it, you won't pass emission visual testing, but you won't see performance gains, or nominal ones at best. You'll run leaner, but again, you probably notice it since your charcoal canister isn't working properly anyways.
