my car doesn't have a holder, so yesterday i filled up and forgot the cap at the pump. today my check engine light comes on - hello, no fuel cap! doh! i stopped off at the auto parts store and the looked up one for me that is a Frams. i put it in and it seems like it is a perfect fit, but when i started the car, the light is still on. Any thoughts?? Thanks!

This Happend to my moms van several times. Its caused by a vapor sensor in the tank. Long story short she just drove it ,and when it hit little under 1/2 tank the light went off.
Im not sure if this converts into NB's tho. Hope for the best!

An air leak such as a loose or missing filler cap will take a while to reset itself, so just be patient and the CEL will go out.

You might try making a tether for the cap. That way you can't shut the gas flap without having the cap in place.
