the light stayed on for a few weeks and I didn't do anything about it. Then another coil blew and when it was replaced - by magic the light went out.

So, those who said it was a coil : yes, you were right.

but why? the car was running fine. I assume the coil must have been failing intermittently, so mis-firing on the cylinder and so blowing petrol out the exhaust instead of burnt petrol hence lighting the light. However, I didn't notice any misfires.

I can't believe how unreliable those coils are.
