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.

Same problem! How do I fix it?
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.
