Opening the fuel filler door


  1. Turn the engine off.

  2. Ensure all the doors are unlocked.

  3. Pull up the fuel filler door opener.

  4. Remove the fuel tank cap (2) by turning it counterclockwise.

  5. Place the cap on the fuel filler door.


Before refuelling, be sure to check what type of fuel is used for your vehicle.

If you put diesel fuel into a petrol-powered vehicle or petrol into a diesel-powered vehicle, it may affect the fuel system and cause serious damage to the vehicle.


If the fuel filler door does not open because ice has formed around it, tap lightly or push on the door to break the ice and release the door. Do not pry on the door. If necessary, spray around the door with an approved de-icer fluid (do not use radiator anti-freeze) or move the vehicle to a warm place and allow the ice to melt.
