If there was a leak at the gas cap. EG: Left off or loose after fill up? You will need to have the codes cleared or it will clear itself after enough key cycles. EG: Started and shut back off as many as 20 to 50 or more times.

Usually the source of the leak is the gas cap (either loose or defective) but if that doesn't apply to your issue then the canister is next to the gas tank.

This DTC (P0442) depends on what caused the code to set. Most times it's simply a loose fuel cap or the O-ring on the fuel cap is damaged OR dirt got between the O-ring and the mating surface of the fuel filler tube. There are numerous possible causes for the DTC you have -- Fuel cap, pin hole in fuel system (evap hoses, fuel tank, fuel cap), canister close valve leaking, fuel tank pressure sensor malfunction, purge control solenoid valve malfunction, etc.
BEST SOLUTION: Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). If you perfer to try and fix it yourself, Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.

SOURCE: Evap leak
your caravan has a system to control fumes from the gas tank .. any evaporating fuel is absorbed into a canister .. that is connected to a evap/purge solenoid in the engine compartment that directs the fumes to be burned in the engine once its running .. .. the problem can be as simple as a damaged or leaking or wrong type gas cap .. if the gas cap doesnt seal well then air can be drawn into the evaporitive control system ... also if any of the hoses from the evap/purge solenoid to the canister (located near the gas tank) are cracked or loose, you will get the same results .. some of these hoses are rubber .. some are hard plastic .. sometimes they come loose at the canister and need a clamp added ... the evap/purge solenoid could also be bad but much more likely the gas cap is just bad, bent or wrong ..
