stalling after refueling

This stalling on an early-production 2013 MKZ with the 2.0L turbo 4 cyl. It would only happen after refueling, when stopped at a traffic signal after leaving the gas station. Replacing the Vapor Canister Purge Valve/Solenoid assembly eliminated the problem. It has been over a year since the stalling last occurred. This was unrelated to the stalling experienced after a "warm start"; that stalling happened when the car had been driven enough to warm it up, then was parked for 15 - 60 minutes (as when running errands). It would then stall within two minutes of being started. See the other posting for the solution to that problem.
