I got mine dec 28th as well and has 277 miles on it. I haven't seen any warnings yet on the dashboard but I was already aware of this issue so when I had a fill-up, i made sure I closed it tight. I am still having it inspected when I bring "The Beast" for a quality care inspection. Thanks for the heads-up

gas cap replaced

I got mine replaced at about 2700 miles when I got the light. They had just gotten a batch of the new caps in and said that, though it wasn't technically a recall issue at the time, they had been directed to replace them anytime somebody brought their car in with the problem.
