Noticed that getting less gas mileage but thought it was due to winter gas. Few time engine was hard to start.

Was the fuel cap replaced with an OEM part or aftermarket?

Replaced with OEM gas cap.
Dodge Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 months ago

Check the filler neck tube, a rusted fuel filler neck could cause the problem. You have a small EVAP leak somewhere. Need to test the vent solenoid make sure it is not stuck open. Check the charcoal canister and hoses. You have a leak and a smoke test will not always work to diagnose without testing the solenoids and valves.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
