I've had a continuing "check engine" light from a code indicating a vapor leak in the fuel system. After a couple of times resetting the light with a portable instrument (after clicking down on the gas cap), I changed the cap. That was in late February of 2012. Just last week, after getting fuel, the check engine light is on again.
Problem: engine light on due to gas cap. I bought new gas caps several times. Now it says tighten fuel cap.

Changed Gas Cap like Auto parts repair said to do and did not fix the problem.

Light was on, then reset by my repair shop. They said to drive it 50 miles and come back. I drove it about 70 miles and it came back on. Cause and repair are undetermined at this time.

MIL light came on and OBDII code reader indicated an "Open EEC Circuit" condition. Problem cleared by replacing gas cap with a "new" lockable cap and resetting the MIL light.
