WARNING
Fuel vapor burns violently and a fuel fire can cause severe injuries.
Read and follow all the instructions on the pump island.
Turn off your vehicle when you are refueling.
Do not smoke if you are near fuel or refueling your vehicle.
Keep sparks, flames and smoking materials away from fuel.
Stay outside your vehicle and do not leave the fuel pump unattended when refueling your vehicle. This is against the law in some places.
Keep children away from the fuel pump; never let children pump fuel.
Do not use personal electronic devices while refueling.

Use the following guidelines to avoid electrostatic charge build-up when filling an ungrounded fuel container:
  • Place approved fuel container on the ground.
  • Do not fill a fuel container while it is in your vehicle (including the cargo area).
  • Keep the fuel pump nozzle in contact with the fuel container while filling.
  • Do not use a device that would hold the fuel pump handle in the fill position.
Easy Fuel™ Capless Fuel System (Non-Energi Vehicles)
WARNING
The fuel system may be under pressure. If you hear a hissing sound near the fuel filler door, do not refuel until the sound stops. Otherwise, fuel may spray out, which could cause serious personal injury.

When fueling your vehicle:
  1. Put the vehicle in position P and switch the ignition off.
Missing Image
  1. Press the center-rear edge of the fuel filler door and release to open.
Missing Image
Note:  Hold the handle of the fuel filler nozzle higher while you insert the nozzle for easier access.
  1. Slowly insert the fuel filler nozzle fully into the fuel system to open both doors. Leave the nozzle fully inserted until you have stopped pumping fuel.
Missing Image
Note:  Allow about five to ten seconds after pumping fuel before removing the fuel filler nozzle. This allows residual fuel to drain back into the fuel tank and not spill onto the vehicle.
  1. After you have stopped pumping fuel, slowly remove the fuel filler nozzle.
Note:  A fuel spillage concern may occur if overfilling the fuel tank. Do not overfill the tank to the point that the fuel is able to bypass the fuel filler nozzle. The overfilled fuel may run down the drain located below and in front of the fuel filler door.
  1. To close the fuel filler door, press the center rear edge of the fuel filler door and then release. The fuel door will latch closed.
If the fuel fill inlet did not close properly, a Check Fuel Fill Inlet message may appear on the instrument cluster.
At the next opportunity, do the following:
  1. Safely pull off the road.
  1. Put the vehicle in position P and switch the ignition off.
  1. Open the fuel filler door and remove any visible debris from the fuel fill opening.
  1. Insert the fuel fill nozzle, or the fuel fill funnel provided with your vehicle, several times to allow the inlet to close properly. This will dislodge any debris preventing the inlet from sealing.
If this action corrects the problem, the message may not reset immediately. It may take several driving cycles for the message to turn off. A driving cycle consists of an engine start-up (after four or more hours with the engine off) followed by city or highway driving. Continuing to drive with the message on may cause the service engine soon lamp to turn on as well.

Using the manual override lever
WARNING
The fuel system may be under pressure. Insert the fuel nozzle slowly. If you hear a hissing sound near the fuel filler door, do not refuel until the sound stops. Otherwise, fuel may spray out, which could cause serious personal injury.

Note:  The vehicle must be in positionP when using the manual override feature.
The manual override lever is located inside of the trunk on the left rear-side panel.
When using the fuel door manual override to access the fuel fill inlet:
  1. Switch the ignition on prior using a manual override.
Missing Image
  1. Pull the manual override mechanism located in trunk.
  1. Switch off and complete refueling within 20 minutes. If more than 20 minutes is required, close fuel door, and repeat the procedure.
This will enable you to refuel without any issue.
Note:  A fuel spillage concern may occur if overfilling the fuel tank. Do not overfill the tank to the point that the fuel is able to bypass the fuel filler nozzle. The overfilled fuel may run down the drain located below and in front of the fuel filler door.
If you do not properly close the fuel fill inlet, a Check Fuel Fill Inlet message may appear on the instrument cluster. At the next opportunity, do the following:
  1. Safely pull off the road.
  1. Put the vehicle in position P and switch the ignition off.
  1. Open the fuel filler door and remove any visible debris from the fuel fill opening.
