“check Fuel Fill Port” Light Keeps Coming On. I Hit “ok” And Then It Goes Off. However, This Time The Check Engine Light Came On With It, So I Took It In To The Dealer. They Simply Reset The Code, And Told Me That Gas Pump Nozzles “are Sometimes Dirty” And Can Trip The Sensor. One Week Later, The Light Is On Again And I Will Take It Into The Shop This Week. Worry There Could Be A Gas Leak, As After I Fill The Tank Completely, The Gauge Sinks To 3/4 Of A Tank In About 5 Miles. *tr
