Oh, maybe because...
  1. It won't immediately kill the engine
  2. As the engine dies, you're killing it by running lean, and
  3. Then you need to build the pressure back up for the EVAP can.

Have you tried it?

1. It does immediatly kill the engine because I have pressed the gas after and there is no noise and the scangauge goes dead...
2. This is not some performance engine where's it's making 600hp and needs to be tuned so it won't run's not like i'm flooring it to redline and cut the engine. I press in the clutch let the rpms go down to idle and cut the engine.
3. What pressure???

Besides what do you think happens when you park your car and turn the key to the off position??? I do exactly the same thing except I do it while driving...
