    Hi - I have a new 2008 accent and after 4300 km's, the check engine light
    just came on. Having had a 1998 Accent whose light periodically came on
    due to gas cap issues, my first step was to check the gas cap. It WAS very
    loose, so of course I tightened it -- and expect the light will probably go
    off after several drive cycles. There is even a note on the cap which says
    that a loose cap MAY cause the check engine light to illuminate. (The cap
    itself is very loose -even after tightening it with several clicks - it
    doesn't seem to "hold" it's tightness).

    My question to Hyundai Tech: What is the difference between the check
    engine light and the check fuel cap light? Why would one come on and not
    the other, if the cause is the same?

    My first oil change is due in 1700 km's, so I plan to raise the question
    with the service department, but I would also like your thoughts.
