3. There is no fuel filler cap. A flapper door inside the pipe seals the system.

4. Insert the fuel nozzle fully into the filler pipe – the nozzle opens and holds the flapper door while refueling.

NOTE:
Only the correct size nozzle opens the latches allowing the flapper door to open.

5. Fill the vehicle with fuel – when the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts off the fuel tank is full.

6. Remove the fuel nozzle and close the fuel door.

NOTE:
A funnel is provided (located in the trunk in the spare tire area) to open the flapper door to allow for emergency refueling with a gas can.

CAUTION!
To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not “top off” the fuel tank after filling.

WARNING!
• Never have any smoking materials lit in or near the vehicle when the fuel door is open or the tank is being filled.
• Never add fuel when the engine is running. This is in violation of most state and federal fire regulations and may cause the “Malfunction Indicator Light” to turn on.
• A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into a portable container that is inside of a vehicle. You could be burned. Always place gas containers on the ground while filling.
