Your vehicle is OBD II . Some auto parts stores such as Autozone will scan the codes for free and reset the light. If you have access to a OBD II scanner and know how to use it you can do it yourself also. By disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, that will also reset the light, BUT if the issue with your car that triggered the light in the first place has not been taken care of, the light will come on again when the vehicle's computer detects the problem.

Why did the service engine light come on in my 1996 buick roadmastr wagon


You answered your own question. There is a problem with the fuel system. Check the fuel filter, fuel pressure, fuel pump and possibly plugged injectors. Using a scan tool can narrow your search for this problem
