    I bought a 2008 Accent GS in late August 2022, a well cared-for one-owner car; but every time I fill the tank at a gas station, it takes about twenty seconds of cranking to start, and then will not idle properly until a few minutes later. Otherwise, starting is very fast, and idle is fine. Two people have told me it is a fuel-cap problem (?) and I wonder if that is possible. I plan to buy a new fuel cap to test that idea; but does that seem reasonable?
