One of the most common reasons for the RX-8's Check Engine light to turn on is the gas cap not being on tightly enough. Turn off the car, make sure the gas cap is tight, and check to see if the light is still on. You may need to drive the RX-8 for several miles after tightening the gas cap before the light turns off.\011\011\011\011\011\011
