a small evap leak is often interpreted as a loose gas cap , which it can be , it means the evap systems integrity has been breached , it can be an electrical solenoid , switch or just a vacuum line in the system . a bidirectional scanner can run the evap test after checking the gas cap , most well equipped shops can hook up a smoke machine to the evap system service port and run the smoke test , it there is a leak you will see the smoke , makes the diagnosis quickly . get an estimate from a reputable shop , by the way this problem has no effect on drivability , but should be fixed . cheers

Below are the possible causes for your engine light and error code:
The fuel cap is probably the most common cause of this problem. It's considered part of the emission system and if faulty or not place on the filler tube correctly, it will throw an error. Best of luck with your engine light issue. Take care!

P0456: Evaporative Emission System Leak Detected (small leak)
Using a Multimeter, check the Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Canister Purge Regulator Valve N80 terminals 1 and 2 for resistance. You should get 22.0 to 30.0 Ohms. If not, replace the canister. If you do, you have other problems.

open hood and ck for broken vacuum hoses going to the purge valve(2 vacuum ports and a wiring connector)
on the drivers side between airbox and firewall
if good remove driver side rear tire and inspect hoses next to the gas tank and 3rd, the canister is in that wheel well also insp for cracked hoses there also, been working for jeep 12 years i charged people about 1 hour to correct this probem.
