Well this is becoming a common problem with stangs. there is a metal piece that has to make connection to signal its closed. If its broken off you'll have to replace it. But if you just filled up and washed it there could be water or gas disturbing the contact points. Many suggest unhooking the negative battery for 10 minutes but this will not help most likely as its not an error code as it is a circuit failure.

It may need a gas cap, and if you do make sure you get it from the dealer. Not all caps sold on the aftermarket are right for your truck. The code that sets is "evap small leak detected" and while the cap is the most common cause on newer cars, all it takes is a tiny crack in a hose to let the air into the closed system. Replacing a 4 year old cap is the easiest, but if it comes back you will need to find a shop that has a smoke machine. There is a port on the system you hook up to and pumps smoke at very low pressure into the closed system and you follow all the lines until you see smoke coming out of the leak. It is work the cost to have it diagnosed because you cannot find the leak with out the machine and the repair is generally nominal in cost. In most states it will not pass inspection with this light on.
Hope this helps

While your fuel cap may still be an issue there are many other items that may be at fault. It's possible the fuel cap tightening is a coincidence and something else is causing the problem.
There are a few hundred possibilities that could turn on your MIL.
First thing that needs to be done is verify what the code is that turns on the light. If you are in the USA Autozone will give you a free scan to start you off. Then you can begin to home in on the problem.
Best of the festive season to you.
