You can get "wet" gasoline at any station where the operator doesn't clean the tank filter regularly.

Fuel filter. Timing/timing chain. Idle air control valve. Idle sensor. Vacuum leak. Probably one of the above, but the filter is cheapest place to start. Change your air filter too, if you haven't for a while.

Hello Michael.
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.

The top where the pump goes in is could be leaking. Have it checked ASAP, a gas fire is a dangerous thing.

it is a distinct possibility as some dealers use a E added fuel to rip motorists off. It is also a possibility that there was water in the fuel so I would have the fuel filter changed as a precaution. Run the fault codes to check for reported faults.

200e chevy tahoe sputtered shut down while driven on turnpike after getn gas started back up few minutes later thot it was bad gas what else could be problem


It could be the fuel pump. The pump is in the gas tank. The pump is actually cooled by the fuel. Occasionally, in hot weather, when the pump starts to get old, if you run the fuel tank very low, the pump will heat up. Then, when refueling, you are putting fuel in the vehicle that comes from underground at about 50 degrees F. This can cause the pump to fail.

Could be bad gas, water in the gas? Run the tank down to about 1/4 and put gas from somewhere else in it. Maybe higher octane for one tank full. Maybe put an additive in with it. If it clears up, then it was the gas.
