    I think that the code may be a P0422 or P0442. I can find no P2422 code for a Kia like yours.
    You will need to have the Evaporative Emissions System inspected to trace down the cause of the fault code. I do this daily, because I do Emissions Diagnosis in California, which has an intense Emissions Inspection and repair program.
    here is a little about the EVAP system

    thank you for the info. I will have it looked at immediately. funny thing was that I ended up putting higher grade gas in the tank and the light went off.
