1300 miles engine light on

Hi guys
my 2019 GLC 300 after 1300 miles the engine light just came on, I called my dealer , they said to open and close the gas cup and drive for another 50 miles and should shut of, this seems little strange to me but they may be right.
any opinions?
thank you

That's good advice. The most common cause of a check engine light is a fuel filler cap that's not installed correctly.

Finally got the car back , they find a charcoal canisters for the evaporative emission system faulty, and they replaced it.

Please understand when you fill the tank - when the pump stops - you stop - no "topping off"
