    It is most likely your Fuel Sending unit. This will set a Check Engine Light when it malfunctions. Have the code retrieved just to be sure though.
    The Fuel Cap will not trigger the low fuel light, that is controlled by the Fuel Sending Unit in the Fuel Tank.

    Good Luck!

    You may need to try reinstalling the gas cap. If not put on properly and secured tight it can possibly cause this problem. Good Luck!!!
