In my case the light comes on well after I fill the tank. In both cases I filled the tank, then drove until the tank was half full before the light came on. The light remained on through a couple of more fillings until I had the car serviced. My service department mentioned the gas cap issue but agreed with me that this didn't seem like a likely cause.
If you are sure you are putting the gas cap on correctly, and the problem persists, either there is another problem or the cap design needs work. In either case I don't see how Nissan can justify charging you to check it. There is no reason to design and sell a product that a typical user won't be able to operate properly.
