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
