Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
I had a similar problem with a 2000 Kia Sportage. The check engine light came on all the time. Part of the problem seemed to be the fuel cap having high pressure. Then one fine day I smelled gas fumes from the rear of the vehicle. After removing the fuel pump cover in the rear behind the seats, I found gas coming from a hose from the tank. I then (sometime later) I found a crack in another hose. The hose was from the filler neck. It caused a lack of vapor pressure and a smell. The check engine light now was off.

SOURCE: when I'm pumping gas it
New cars have small diameter pipes to the fuel tank, this is because the pump nozzle is smaller for no lead fuel and it has been my experience you can't pump new cars fast like in the old days, it is something U have to live with.
