I've never heard of that. Weird... I know my gas light is tempermental but not my check engine light.

I would guess that you have some sort of vacuum leak in your gas tank or it's not getting proper ventilation.

Now that I think of it, isn't the check engine light supposed to stay on until you clear the codes???

i've heard of that happening when your filling your tank and the car is either running or if it's not turned completely off. But like halftendril said it might be a vaccum leak. Go the the tech forum and ask them, they should know.
