    600 miles on the car and my first check engine light. Driving to work I was playing around in the ‘Engineering Mode’ watching the AFM turn on/off… so I wonder if this has something to do with it? I called OnStar and they ran a remote diagnosis that came back ‘ignition fault’. The operator suggested tightening the gas cap (strange, I filled-up last week and it has been tight ever since). On the way home from work I got a ‘Low Fuel’ notice and figured I would fill-up and see if that changed anything. After the fill-up I still have the check engine light… and when I parked I noticed the smell of gasoline. I grabbed my Father’s nose (and the rest of him came along too) and we went sniffing around. He could definitely smell the odor of gasoline… and today is a semi-windy day, so it’s not like it’s a small drip or anything

    I called the dealer’s service department and will be bringing the car by tomorrow morning.
