“evap fault”

I was told by the BMW dealership service experts that my X6 has an “evap fault”. Anyone knows what this is all about? How much can something like this cost to repair? What could possibly go wrong to receive an error such as “evap fault”? Can this be a DIY project? Anyone had any experience with this? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated ...

Likely a 2A15, 2A16 fault. The problem with this fault is it's difficult to find but once you do, the parts are generally inexpensive (on a E90 anyway) and I assume it would be more or less the same on a X6 and is definitely DIY-able.

Thank you for your reply. Could it simply be replacing of gas tank cap?

It is actually “fuel tank ventilation system and purge air system, micro leak fault 2B28”. Anyone know what this is? Is it DIY?
