Just make sure the gas cap is on tight and take it to the dealer. Its covered under warranty but if the gas cap is left loose i have heard of them charging to look at it because its considered driver error not vehicle error.

There is no "gas cap". I did insert the nozzle into the gas tank, when it was withdrawn it seemed closed but the engine light remained on.

I am not that familiar with the new "no cap" systems other than i know you can only use the funnel that comes with the car or the pump nozzle at gas stations. I would just take it to dealer.
