Default Service engine soon light after hard acceleration

Hey everyone quick question the other night I was hard accelerating a lot, ended the night by getting gas and going home. The next day I was driving to school and my service engine soon light came on, so later I checked out the code and its popping up with p0442 (Evap system). Thought it was the gas cap but it hasn't gone away after like 4 cold stay ups so do you guys have any idea what else it could be? Also after that light came on gas mileage has been a little worse.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

When you fill up, you do stop filling after the pumphandle clicks off, only once, correct?

YOu don't top it off( which totally screws your EVAP...)?

Nonsense.
I do 50,000KM (35,000miles) a year, so I go through quite a bit of gas, and I ALWAYS top off. Matter of fact, if it stops at $33.69, I'll get it to $35.00
I've NEVER had this code.
The SL1 I put 150,000 KM on before I gave it to my daughter in law, and the SL2, I've put 30,000km on since June.
Topping off isn't his problem.

The SL2..The awesome deal.
