Did the "check gas cap" come up on the DIC, or did the check engine light come on? The check gas cap riddle I was working on gave a code of p0440 when it showed up with just the message on the DIC. If it goes too long, it will then set the SES which gave a second code of p0442.

I was going to say that if the code was P0452, that would be the fuel tank pressure circuit and you might need a new fuel tank pressure sensor. It'* a piece of cake to change since it'* right on top of the fuel pump.
