Most common is the gas cap, then it is the flow sensor in the evap line, so replace your gas cap first, then get the codes cleared and then see if it returns.

it is a capless tank

AAHH OK check with your Ford dealer, this may still be under warranty for emission controls, some of those had a 5 year 50K mileage warranty.
