Yeah give it 80-100 miles before you start celebrating. Had a Fiat 500 with an evap leak and even after new gas cap it took somewhere near/north of 80 miles for the CEL to trigger....at which point the Chrysler dealership proposed replacing the tank and all the lines to the tune of almost $1,000.

Keep monitoring to see if it comes back

Be careful what you erase, it might have 8/80 emissions coverage

Be carefull not to fill the tank - especially in HOT weather.
That flood the evap system and causes codes and malfuntion.

I still see people topping off. One of the worse things you can do to a car these days,

Likely totally unrelated but my wife had a 2014 sonic in the past that kept throwing a lean code. Couldn't figure out what the heck the issue was. Finally after looking all around and pulling on the intake tube i realized it was cracked and the crack opened when the engine moved. Seems to be a common problem on the early sonics.

This may not be your issue now, but i would suggest inspecting your rubber intake tube and potentially even ordering a new GM unit as it will eventually crack.

A bad/loose gas cap isn’t going to cause 3 separate EVAP codes IME. There is an honest to goodness leak somewhere in the system. Take it somewhere with a smoke machine.
