Fuel-Filler Lid and Cap

WARNING.

When removing the fuel cap, loosen the cap slightly and wait for any hissing to stop. Then remove it:
Fuel spray is dangerous. Fuel can burn skin and eyes and cause illness if ingested. Fuel spray is released when there is pressure in the fuel tank and the fuel cap is removed too quickly.

Before refueling, stop the engine, and always keep sparks and flames away from the filler neck:
Fuel vapor is dangerous. It could be ignited by sparks or flames causing serious burns and injuries.

Additionally, use of the incorrect fuel filler cap or not using a fuel filler cap may result in fuel leak, which could result in serious burns or death in an accident.

CAUTION.

Always use only a genuine Mazda fuel cap or an approved equivalent, available at an Authorized Mazda Dealer. The wrong cap can result in a serious malfunction of the fuel and emission control systems. It may also cause the check engine light in the instrument cluster to illuminate.

Fuel-Filler Lid

To open, pull up the remote fuel-filler lid release.

NOTE.


NOTE.

The fuel-filler lid cannot be opened when the right-side sliding door is open. Close the sliding door to open the fuel-filler lid.

Fuel-Filler Cap

To remove the fuel-filler cap, turn it counterclockwise.

To close the fuel-filler cap, turn it clockwise until two or more click sounds are heard.

CAUTION.


CAUTION.

Make sure the fuel-filler cap is tightened securely. The check engine light may illuminate when the cap is not tightened securely. If the light remains on (even after you have tightened the cap securely, driven, and restarted the engine several times), it may indicate a different problem. Contact an Authorized Mazda Dealer as soon as possible.
