How do I open the fuel tank cap?

You have to open the fuel tank cap when you want to put gas in or an additive. You want the engine to be shut off for safety. Locate the fuel door release lever, which is on the floor by the driver’s seat. Pull up on the lever. Then, go outside of the vehicle and turn the cap slowly counterclockwise to open. Hang the cap on the fuel door. To close it, turn the cap clockwise until a click sounds.
