B0281 is a kind of OBD-II Diagnostic B-Body Diagnostic Trouble Code for Mitsubishi Tredia.

B0281 Mitsubishi Tredia or the Evaporative Emission Control System Incorrect Purge Flow is the set whenever the computer sees that there is a problem with the flow coming from the purge valve or the purge flow is not enough within the EVAP system. If the car doesn't start, they will proceed by testing the voltage at the fuel pump connector and see if the fuel pump relay, fuse, and PCM circuitry should be inspected.
