'13 PF with 166k mi. Got gas last night, drove home a couple of miles, and the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL). That was Tues night. Taking short trips since then, light is still on. Check the gas cap several times and it seems to be on correctly. Local service center said it might take a few days and some more trips before it goes off. If it doesn't go off by the end of the weekend or starts flashing to bring it in. Any thoughts? thanks

I would get a cheapo OBD II reader. I got mine for <$10. I haven't had to use it yet on my PF but when the check engine light came on in 2 of my other cars, it gave me the code and also allowed me to turn the light off. You can Google the code. On a couple of occasions, I was able to buy a $10 replacement part and fix my problem. (Probably >$100 if taken to a shop) Even if you don't have a mechanical thumb, it's nice to know the problem before taking it in to the stealer.
