Fuel Filler Cap (Gas Cap)

The gas cap is behind the fuel filler door, on the left rear quarter panel of the vehicle. If the gas cap is lost or damaged, be sure the replacement cap is for use with this vehicle.

After removing the gas cap, place the gas cap tether cable over a hook on the inside of the fuel door. This keeps the gas cap suspended away from and protects the vehicle’s surface.

If the gas cap is lost or damaged, be sure the replacement cap is for use with this vehicle.

CAUTION!
• Damage to the fuel system or emission control system could result from using an improper fuel tank filler tube cap (gas cap).

• A poorly fitting gas cap may cause the “Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)” to turn on.

• To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not “top off” the fuel tank after filling. When the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts off, the fuel tank is full.

WARNING!
• Never have any smoking materials lit in or near the vehicle when the gas cap is removed 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 doing so may cause the MIL 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.

NOTE:
• Tighten the gas cap until you hear a “clicking” sound.

This is an indication that the gas cap is tightened properly. The MIL in the instrument cluster may turn on if the gas cap is not secured properly. Make sure that the gas cap is tightened each time the vehicle is refueled.

• When the fuel nozzle “clicks” or shuts off, the fuel tank is full.
