Default 1999 Passat Advice needed please.

Hello!

So, I need some advice for you awesome folks. I recently bought a '99 Passat in December, I've had no problems with it and the old owners maintained it to a T. They gave me every service record and thing that has ever been done on it.

So, I went to go fill up my gas tank today, and I'm pretty sure I topped it off, since the pump I was at didn't click when it was full if that makes sense, gas actually spilled around a bit. It was an accident and I stopped it as soon as I figured out that by then I probably had a full tank. I informed the gas station and the like.

HOWEVER, my check engine light came on after I filled it up and shut the gas cap. I brought it to Autozone to have a diagnostic test run on it and it came up with P0441, so it's an emissions thing.

Question is though, should I bring it in? The only thing I need done to the car is an oil change right now as I'm getting close and I plan on doing that tomorrow, I just don't know. I know I'm not supposed to top off a car, but it was an accident and I'm freaking out a bit here.

Advice?

Make sure the quick release lines for the N80 valve and vacuum line to LDP are not crossed.
This can also make the engine hard to start after filling up the fuel tank.
