My Volt is telling me it needs it's oil changed (I love that!). I have 42K miles and noticed it's due for 45K service of rotating tires, change air filter and inspect evaporative control system.

What's involved in the inspection? Should I take it to the dealer for the inspection, oil change, etc. I have a slimy feeling that the 45K service will somehow be $200 or something. I'm still a little bitter with paying $50 for Audi to install wiper blades on my A4 several years ago!

I'm totally fine with doing the oil change, tire rotation, and air filter by myself. Should I just wait until the EVAP system throws an error code?

Thatls a good question. I believe inspection just really involves verifying hoses are in good condition and possibly check/clean/replace any filter on the bottom of the evap canister as well as possibly pressure test the fuel cap. However, that said, most any issue with the EVAP system will throw a MIL on. I'd say do your tires/oil and leave the evap system check for the next time it needs dealership service.
