I have to agree with Hal on this one but if the fuel cap is present you will have to bring it into a qaulified repair shop.

It's safe to drive but you need to bring it in for diagnosis. That's a gross (large) leak like missing gas cap. Check it first...
yes,if the light doesnot light up after driving appx.50 miles and fuelcap is ok.
