Sometimes those lights have to be manually reset. Call a dealership and check.

Go to the mechanic and have the light turned OFF. Then if it comes back on -----go have it checked to see if there are other issues. Sometimes there are other issues that keep it on.

Okay now once check light is on you cant just let it go by tightening the gas cover. You may need to wait for sometime if you are sure that happened just after you filled up the gas. If light is stil on then go to mechanic bcoz it may be something different and you dont want to pay more for the same thing you knew already.
