2018 Atlas SEL Engine Light just came on after 91,000 miles. I have had no issues at all with this SUV in the 27 months of ownership before this. However. The other day when fueling I noticed what sounded like a motor running in the gas tank when I took the fuel cap off. Yes. I’m the idiot that leaves the car running when fueling. That was the first time I had heard this noise and then all of a sudden tonight the engine light comes on. Anyone experienced this?

I mean if I had to guess you could have heard your fuel pump.
Not sure why you have never heard it before or why you heard it this time.
Additionally, if you have the motor running with a loose fuel cap, you can throw a check engine light
I'm guessing if you pull the code, it will be evap related.
You can just take it to an Autozone or Discount Auto...or one of those sort of stores and have them check the code.
You can also ask them to clear it.
