not sure if thats normal, what specific code are you getting and which engine do you have? normally leaks are found by inspecting for rust holes, the gasket on the cap, throw some gas down the tube and see if anything gets wet, inspect the canister tubes. alot of times its the vent valve, but you replaced it.

I FOUND IT It appears there is a plastic insert in the cap end of the filler neck that the cap seals on.Air is leaking between metal neck tube and plastic insert.
