What is the check fuel cap message

The check fuel cap message is a reminder to drivers to tighten or replace the gas cap on their vehicles. A loose or damaged gas cap can cause fuel to evaporate from the tank, leading to decreased fuel efficiency and increased emissions. The message may appear intermittently at first but will become more persistent if the problem is not fixed. In some cases, the message may be accompanied by a blinking "check engine" light on the dash. If you see this message, it's important to take action right away to prevent further damage to your vehicle.
