The most common cause to this code is a fuel cap that is lose or not sealing. I would check the fuel cap to see if its lose or replace the cap altogether to see if that code will go away. If the code remains, it could be the EVAP check valve at the fuel tank that is stuck open or closed and needs to be replaced.
