Subject: Why does the Anti-lock light go out when petrol goes in

I have a problem with the ABS on my newly aquired '92 CS Carlsson. The "anti-lock" light is mostly on and in the 2 weeks that I have had the car has gone out on 2 occasions... both of which have been when I have just put petrol in the car. Has anyone else experienced this... Has anyone got any theories (other than coincidence) or am I just going mad ? Attempts to re-create the forecort experience (short run followed by 5 minute stop followed by short run) have not had the same effect. I have booked the car in at the dealer tomorrow to have the codes read... but as the anti-lock light isnt showing now (just filled up -silly me) will he still be able to diagnose the problem ? Is there some possible electrical fault (dash-related/ low fuel related) fault that could cause this. The abs and low fuel lights havent been wired together by a "bodger" as they do operate independently when I first turn the key. Could a splash of petrol be washing over the sensor or something ? or is there another explaination ?
