The price of fuel can make filling your tank a real pain. So we do what we can to make it easier.
Press on the center-left side of the fuel door until you hear a click. Now let go. The door will spring open.
NOTE: When the car is locked, the fuel door is, too—and it will not open until you unlock the driver’s door.
Push the door until you hear a click.
- Always make sure that the fuel filler cap is screwed on all the way. This helps keep fuel from spilling out or evaporating.
- Fuel is highly flammable and explosive; it can cause severe burns and other severe injuries.
- Failure to shut the engine off while refueling and/or to insert the pump nozzle all the way into the fuel filler neck can cause fuel to overflow and to spray out. Fuel spray and overflowing fuel are dangerous because they can cause fire and serious personal injury.
- During fueling, the engine and the ignition must be switched off for safety reasons.
- Never use a cellular telephone, CB radio, or other radio equipment while refueling. The electromagnetic radiation can cause sparks that can ignite fuel vapors and cause a fire.
- Never get back into your vehicle while refueling. If in exceptional circumstances you must get back in your vehicle while refueling, make certain that you close the door and touch metal to discharge static electricity before touching the filler nozzle again. This helps avoid the build-up of static electricity, which can cause sparks that can ignite fuel vapors released during refueling.
- Never smoke or have an open flame (or sparks, cigarettes, or other smoldering objects) anywhere in or near your vehicle when refueling or filling a portable fuel container.
- Follow all safety instructions and procedures that apply at the service station where you refuel.
- Never spill fuel in the vehicle or the luggage compartment.
- For your safety, we strongly recommend that you do not travel with a portable fuel container in your vehicle.
- If, under exceptional circumstances, you must transport a portable fuel container, please observe the following:
- Never fill a portable fuel container while it is anywhere in or on the vehicle (for example, in the luggage compartment or on top of the luggage compartment lid). Static electricity can build up while filling and can ignite fuel vapors, causing a fire.
- Always place a portable fuel container on the ground before filling. Never spill fuel inside the vehicle or luggage compartment. Fuel vapors are highly flammable.
- Always keep the filler nozzle completely inside the portable container before and during filling.
- If filling a portable container made of metal, the filler nozzle must always be in contact with the container. This will help prevent static electricity from discharging and causing a fire.
- Always observe local and state or provincial laws about the use, storage, and transportation of portable fuel containers.
- Make certain that the portable fuel container meets industry standards, such as ANSI/ASTM F852-86.
