RE: Check Engine Light on after filled up with gas?

there may be a couple of problems.
i agree with the gas cap but you should not have hesistation during accelertion unless you have water in gas i had both problems with my cars.regarding gas cap ,open and recap properly.if the check engine lite is due to that it will go away in 15-20 cycles of turn on and off of the car. regarding h2o in gas you can add any dry gas made for fuel injections.but sometimes slight debris in gas can partially clog fuel injectors.i had that problem too my mb service manager recommends BK44 fuel additive to the fuel tank might help check out
and finally if you keep driving if it is a minor problem check engine lite will eventually go away after driving for a while
good luck
