    P1494, WITH A REAL SCANNER SEE IF EVAP. TEST CAN BE RUN. IF NOT COULD BE POOR CONNECTION AT PUMP THAT CHECKS EVAP. STSTEM.
    MAY NEED A MECHANIC TO DO THIS TEST. ( SMELL GAS?)

    GO ONLINE AND ENTER OBDII DIAGNOSTIC CODES, THEN ENTER THE CODE IE P1494 AND SEE WHAT IT SAYS!
    GAS CAP AIN'T GOING TO HELP! IF IT WERE CODE PO440 MIGHT BE THE CAP.

    you need to fix it...otherwise it will always come back on...check for fuel cap seal...then have a shop perform a evap test to find out where it is leaking
