With all due respect:
The fault is an electrical issue (An improper VOLTAGE signal is sent to ECM through EVAP canister vent control valve.), so the gas cap has nothing to do with this fault.

The ECU monitors the voltage and current of its inputs and outputs to verify they are functioning properly.

On the 350z/370z (and G35/37) the vent value is a common failure. This is due to the valve being open all the time, except when the OBD evaporations monitor runs.

This allows dirt and water to find its way in and prevent the solenoid valve from make a 100% seal.
