Gas cap sensor triggers check engine light. Despite replacing gas cap at the dealership the light goes back on.
"tighten fuel cap" persistent problem, replaced cap, replaced tank vent solenoid (that fixed the slow fuel fill problem). Cleared faults for about a month then get a periodic "tighten fuel cap" and check engine.

MIL light comes on right after I fill gas tank and drive at speeds over 70 MPH. New O2 sensors, New air filter, new spark plugs, new plug wires, and I still get a P300 trouble code. (Random multiple mis fires). No help from Dealership other than an offer to TRADE IN TO buy "THE NEWEST CROWN JEWEL". Well, BS to that...

I got a message on dash telling me to tighten the gas cap. I thought this was strange sine I hadn't gotten gas for about a week. Anyway, I tightened it for chuckles. Next day, I got the same message and did the same thing. Then I got the indicator light for the gas. I called on-star to do a diagnostic system check. They said tighten the gas cap and if the problem persists, go to the dealership for service.
Got a diagnosis with a code using the code machine...the code could have been a couple things related to gas, but it was determined that it was just that the gas cap was too loose ....just replace the cap.

I have an 08 denali with the WORST gas cap. It is very hard to get it to seat flush. I constantly get the check engine light because it doesn't create a seal when it's on.
