    It could be something as simple as a loose fuel filler cap. If you live near a Autozone store they can read the code and tell you what is wrong- for free...

    You have a warranty, just take it to the dealer. As long is the light is not flashing, it should be okay to drive.

    While Autozone and others can read the code and this may tell you the problem it is detecting but not necessarily what the underlying cause of the problem is.

    You may want to make sure the gas cap is tight, turn it until it clicks several times. But I thought most cars had gone to separate light for loose gas cap and no longer use the CEL for that?

    Nope, my 2007 threw an "Evap Leak" code CEL due to a loose fuel cap about a month ago...
