So many parameters are monitored by the engine light and its system.
From O2 sensors to a misfire to even a gas cap not on correctly.

One cannot troubleshoot if the light if it comes on and back off intermittently.
Once it comes on and stays on can it be checked.

But, just a hunch...try putting in a tank of high test gasoline that has NO alcohol in it.

Check Engine lights are notorious for coming on due to alcohol being burned and that fuels ineffeciency.

Hope this helped...

Just bought my '03 vw passat wagon today,with

It may not reset for 50 drive cycles. It would be quicker to get it scanned by the dealer who just sold it to you and ask them for the code. If it does come back as a small evap leak then they can clear the code and you can be on your way. If the vehicle was left running during you refilling the fuel, it would trigger this code. Just don't tell them that when you take it in. Play dumb and tell them "it just came on"! let me know if you need anything else.
