No, I suspect you have another issue. Have it scanned for codes.

It shouldn't, but its not a good idea to keep your fuel level so low as it sets the stage for condensation inside the tank as the car/components get cooler with the ambient temperature. Try not to let your fuel supply in the tank drop below 1/2 tank if you park it outside at night.

cont'd: the poster Tom is right. Scan it for codes.
