Contacted Subaru and they said the lights indicated the gas cap was loose and should clear in a couple of days.

I agree with Mike just get the codes read at one of the local autoparts stores I know Monroe muffler will do this . Advanceauto will also Advance auot won't charge you , I am a regular customer at the local Monroe muffler shop so they didn't charg me . After the code is read do some research on it and see what can be done just don't klet it go to long

I have this issue on my 2013 outback. It consistently turns off at 1/4 tank and when you fill up it will turn off at 3/4 tank. I have had the error codes run when they are on, and it only shows the catalytic converter. I have had my emissions test run during the light off period and it passed.

my 2012 outback does this when any headlight, tail light, parking light goes out and needs bulb replacement.
