Did the mechanic check for engine codes with a scan tool? If not, u can have it done at most parts stores for free. Write down any codes they get off the honda's computer, ask them what to do to correct any trouble codes they find, and if it has anything to do w/ the gas smell. Have u checked under the car and in the engine compartment for evidence of gas leaks? Keep in mind that gas evaporates rather quickly, so it can be difficult to spot a leak. Put a large piece of cardboard under the car, and check it for wet spots or stains after parking. Let me know how u make out and if u need further help.

Because this is a 1996, it's got a standard OBD-II computer. Take it to any auto parts store and ask them to read the trouble code for you -- every major parts store (Pep Boys/Autozone/Checker/etc) will do it for free.
Your OBD connector is behind the ashtray in the center console -- pull the ashtray out, then push down on the metal part at the top to release it and pull it the rest of the way out of the console.
If you generally do your own work, you might jump on eBay and look for an OBD-II code reader. I got mine for $25 including shipping. It's nothing fancy, but it's saved me a few trips to the parts store place.

If this cap was in fact the cause of the problem the car is designed to reset the CEL when a certain number of ignition cycles has been met without the original problem recurring. If it does not reset itself on its own then you'll need to look at the EVAP system for any leaks or bad parts. Common causes of that code are a bad EVAP solenoid, bad fiel cap seal, dry/rotted hoses, poor hose connections.
