Here's another possibility, since you said that it came on very soon after filling up. It's unlikely that the added gas was so bad that it caused a problem, given that the new gas had to have been diluted with the older gas that was not troublesome.
What I think you should consider is that the gas cap was not reinstalled properly -- some cars have a system where it detects a lack of pressure integrity within the fuel system, and a gas cap that isn't properly sealed can produce a fault code.
Try replacing the cap (not buying a new one -- just take it off and put it back on, twisting it fully; also check the gasket for breaks) and then restart the car and see if it improves anything.
