Default Code P0456 problem

I hooked up a code reader to determine why my check engine light was on and got a P0456 code. It said "EVAP Emissions Control Leak, very small." Does somebody know a good resolution for this? Is it serious or an easy fix?

it shouldn't be a huge issue if its a very small leak (I think even a loose gas cap can cause that code to be thrown). You could bring it to a shop and have them use a smoke machine to find the leak and see how big it actually is

Clear the code, if it doesn't come back good. Could be as simple as the seal on your gas cap is hard and not sealing(silicone grease will help) If it comes back then you need to have someone perform a Smoke test to find the source of the leak.
