Mine does not do it either. It will eventually throw the EVAP code though, but takes probably 30 miles before it CEL comes on

I would have never known I had a fuel cap light unless I turned the key to just "ON" not actually running though.

That is the only time it comes on

Thats what I mean...non-running on position.

Mine is the same way. But someone stole the stock cap it had once and I replaced it with one that has a lock. Idk if that had anything to do with it but I noticed the cap was gone when I filled up the tank with gas and it was a whole week when I noticed it was gone. The light did not come on at all.
