Same issue, bought a replacement gas cap didn't fix it. I would notice the gas cap would get loose after driving a couple times. Replaced with a new factory cap from chevrolet.

Engine light on, fuel cap light comes on after five miles of driving. Plug-in testing reveals unidentified vacuum leak. New cap for 30 bucks does not restore the loss of faith in a part that should last longer than five years.

Driver information says gas cap loose and check engine light is on. Autozone checker says evaporative system or gas cap.

The gas cap strap got wrapped under the cap after refueling causing the cap not to seal properly. This caused the check engine light to come on until the gas cap was sealed properly.

Check engine light will randomly come on...not just after filling up. Eventually goes off. Took to shop and they said it was the gas cap. They messed with cap and light went off. About an hour later the light comes on again. Grrr.
Engine Light comes on...Disconnected battery to reset computer..goes off for a while 2 weeks, then returns,..now gas cap light comes on intermittently. Will replace gas cap and see what happens.
