Locking gas cap issue

Everytime I use this after market locking gas cap from Auto Zone the gas cap lights on my dash followed 15 minutes later by the CEL and it idles rough. Anyone else experience this. I'm going to the dealer next but wonder if Ford's will make a difference.

Aftermarket accessories are never as good as ones built specifically for the vehicle.

I called the dealer parts dept. and would you believe they said they don't make a locking gas cap for my vehicle. Makes you wonder.
