You could have sucked up some dirt that was in the bottom of the gas tank into fuel filter, clogging it. When was the last time it was changed? You also want to scan the car to see what code is triggering the engine light. Maybe a clogged injector or something totally different.

Sounds like an 02 sensor....check your codes

Top the car up with fuel and add some denatured alcohol to the tank... Should resolve the grease and impurities that got into the fuel system. Works 99% of times.
