PS...I put the old gas cap back on for now. Guess I didn't have it on securely when I put gas in it the last time and it worked itself loose.
Deb FYI I have the same locking cap as you and have had it on a month now and no problem with the check gas cap message or check engine light. I do not run my tank below half. How low was your tank when it came on? Maybe mine would come on if I ran it lower.
But maybe you have another issue. I think if I were you I would run it in for a diagnostic in case it is purely conincidental to you having the different fuel cap. Not sure I would want to drive it as much as is apparently needed to get the light to shut off when triggered by the gas cap if I was not positive it was caused by the cap.
