It seems that sometimes after refueling ithe check engine light come on. I have tried tightening the gas cap. sometimes the light will go off sometimes not. Other than that the car runs fine I even drove it to a new home a five hour drive, and the car seems to be fine, just this light won't go off

    A proper diagnostic scan will reveal the truth. Yes, a poorly fitting gas cap can cause the MIL to light, but in theroy, the light would stay on until the cap is replaced and the codes cleared.
