no not related. Its an emissions code. I would check your gas cap. Otherwise you will have to have it smoke tested to find the leak.

Check your EVAP purge value. It could be sticking. I was getting this code. Just lightly tap it with a screw drive handle....I have not had a problem since and that was a little over a year ago. Also you may have a leak in the hoses to the valve.
