    chloweeeee,
    Have you had a chance to take your Cruze into your dealer to have them look into this for you? I would like you to keep me posted on the outcome of your service appointment. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime.
    Thank you,

    Hey guys thanks for the unsolicited criticism and the confirmation of why I've never posted in a message board. I took it to the dealership the day I posted that and, just like I thought, it was a non-critical issue that they won't even be able to fix for a couple weeks.

    I took it over the weekend and they said it was due to the engine thermostat. The part is back-ordered, but they will calll me as soon as it gets in.

    That makes absolutely no sense. Can anyone explain how the engine thermostat triggers a CEL based on the amount of fuel left in the tank?

    If you posted to WebMD about having shooting pains up your neck and down your arm and asked if this was something serious and can it wait until my next checkup, people there would be up in your business too.

    Cloweeeee, Sorry you can't take simple advice or read things into the posts. You asked and we told you what we thought you should do. If these comments hurt your feelings, I hope you never work in the real world. It is not all cotton candy clouds and rainbows out there, either.

    I have the same issue with my 2011 cruze. The CEL goes off right after I fill up. I'm out of warranty though, suggestions?

    Define fillup. By this I mean are you stopping at or very quickly (no more than the next dollar) after the first pump click off or are you filling until the gas is visible in the fill pipe?
