Make sure the fuel cap is tight and don't worry about it unless the light comes back on.

HI Kelley. The same thing happened to me. I filled the tank, tightened the cap until it clicked once. While driving, it came loose. The engine light came on. I read the owners manual, Checked the gas cap and realized it had loosened. I tightened it until it clicked twice. After 10 days with the engine light on, I went to the FIAT dealership. The technician said it can take up to 14 days for the computer to determine the gas/air mixture has stabilized from the cap being tightened properly. Sure enough, day 12, the engine light went off. Now I make it a habit to tighten the gas cap until it clicks twice! No problems since. Car runs well. Hope this helps. Jerry
