My 2005 model also just started showing the warning about the gas cap. Also, the van lurches forward sometime while braking. I did some searching online, and it seems the issues may be related.
Anyone familiar with this issue and how I might resolve it, hopefully without having service done by the dealership?

I just bought a 2012 Honda Odyssey (Oct.31, 2011). During the test drive the Check Fuel Cap indicator came on. The dealer service department "fixed it" and as I was taking it home the indicator light came back on again. It would periodically go out but would come back on after driving about 5 miles.
I found this thread and emailed a link to the sales person and her manager. They arranged for me to bring the vehicle back in and gave me a loaner. She said that the service manager found service bulletins for the 2011. They kept my car a week, and said that they replaced the vacuum canister (as described in this thread.) So far the indicator light has not come back on. If this continues, I will be very pleased that both the sales and survive people listened and acted to resolve the problem.

I bought a 2012 Honda Odyssey (Nov.29, 2011). During the drive home the Check Fuel Cap indicator came on. Dealer said I needed to drive it a few days for the system reset. Dec.7thThe dealer service department "fixed it" was told the problem was gas cap, and as I was taking it home the indicator light came back on again. I was then told it sometimes takes driving 50 miles at highway speed to reset the light.??? Back to dealer Dec.7th got rental car. Dec 10th. Picked car up after they replaced Pur control solinod valve and a purge joint to fix error code 21222. This time I made it about 5 miles , came on again..... Set to take it back Dec. 12th. Will cross my fingers.

2012 odyssey touring, the light was on during test drive was told no issue and the light was 'turn off' when pick up the van, The light came back on the next day and would not go away. The dealer reset it again, drove half a mile from the dealership, the light came back and turn back of drop off the car. The tech did the following: changed fuel cap, changed canister, and did more tests recommend from the honda tech line, light still turns on, they finally replace the computer (pcm) and it solves the problem for good. The dealer I went to did a good job fixing the problem but this should not happened in the first place if the manufacture had better quality control. This problem is there in day one.

An easy solution is to continue to drive the car over 12 trips or so and the false message will disappear by itself. I have a 2006 Odyssey that does this occasionally and investigated it quite a bit. The car's computer will cancel the message automatically after enough trips are made. Any other solution is cumbersome and not worth it. good luck
