2000 VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE DIAGNOSTIC CODE P0411

Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Volkswagen Beetle 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 56,000 miles

After my check engine light came on, Autozone checked and gave me this error code. The car is running fine, no noise, no leaks, no burning smell. My gas mileage seems to be going down, but then I may be looking for a problem there.
Can I fix this by myself? Do I need to take it into a dealer? How long can I drive with this problem? Would this potentially be covered under a warranty?

This is an EVAP code, you need to ck your gas cap, always tighten it with 3 clicks, code says purge flow problem. So if you havent replaced your gas cap or it is tightened right you will need to go to the dealer and have the EVAP sys checked out, it could bust the gas tank.
