The light indicates a problem and this should be checked; don't just extinguish the light, as it will come back. I'm not aware that there is any bad gas anymore; as the base gas comes from the same refineries.

Since the engine quit on you and now the service engine soon light is on I'd have it looked at. There's definitely something going on and you don't want to get stranded somewhere! Hope that helps! Jim
