someone has overfilled the gas tank and the carbon canister has residual pressure that relieves itself when you put the cap on....this will toss up a check engine light for evaporative fault~

do not drive this vehicle....see if you can go under the car and pinpoint the leak....if your cannot find it have AAA tow you to the nearest service station~
