Q: check engine light and gas cap? on 2008 Lexus RX400h

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
my way to work this morning, the check engine light came up. Lexus dealership said the gas cap is not sealing properly that is the reason the light came up and i need to order a new cap. this car has only 35000 miles and gas cap looks new, is this a real problem? do i need a new cap?

thanks,

Looks can be deceiving , especially when the valving in a gas cap is not easily visible. The round o-ring you see is often not the part that leaks. IF they are set-up for emissions testing , then they should have equipment to test and verify gas cap failure........Maybe not enough fiber in cars diet??
