If they didn't clear the code it will still be there for a few days.

I replaced my gas gap about a year ago, and recently was getting 2 of that code. It was always 2, not just 1. Turns out there was a little piece of hose that wasn't staying on. Replaced it and haven't had any codes since.

They probably sold you a generic cap, that might not fit exactly the same. The one I have has a different feel to it, if you push too hard or not hard enough while turning, it won't seal. AFAIK they don't carry ones specifically for our car in most parts stores.
