How do you remove the gas cap?
Without removing the gas cap, you won’t be able to fill your tank. Nissan makes it easy to remove and replace your cap, and even provides a handy holder for the cap during the filling process. Here’s what you need to know:
Open the fuel door (use the switch on the driver side floorboard).
Unscrew the gas cap.
Set the gas cap in the holder on the back (inside) of the fuel door. This will prevent you from forgetting it.
Fill the tank. The fuel nozzle will automatically shut off when your tank is full.
Close the fuel door securely.

Your gas cap is the ratcheting type – it will tighten and then start clicking when it’s tight.
