FUEL FILL DOOR
Easy-to-use locking fuel door keeps your fuel cap secure.
Opening the Fuel Fill Door
When you unlock the driver’s door,
the fuel door unlocks.
OWNER LINK
Owner Link allows you to explore features and technologies specific to your vehicle,
obtain and update maintenance and service records, and access other useful
information. Register at owners.honda.com to ensure that you continue to enjoy the
experience of owning a Honda. For added convenience, Owner Link can also be
accessed on a mobile device.
To open, push and release the fuel
door in the area shown until it pops
open.
SAFETY REMINDER
Closing the Fuel Fill Door
Push the fuel door until it is flush
with the body.
Your vehicle is equipped with airbags. Airbags do not replace seat belts; they add to
the protection offered by seat belts. Airbags can help protect you in some types of
collisions, but they do not provide protection in all collisions.
Always make sure you and your passengers wear seat belts, and that young children
are properly secured in a child seat or booster in the rear seat. Never place an
infant seat in the front passenger’s seat as the force of a deploying airbag can
seriously injure an infant.
When you lock the driver’s door, the
fuel door locks.
Note: If you lock the doors while
the fuel door is open, you must
unlock the doors to close the fuel
door.

FUEL RECOMMENDATION
• Only use unleaded gasoline of 87 octane or higher.
• Some gasoline in North America contains MMT, a manganese-based fuel additive.
Prolonged and consistent use of gasoline containing MMT can deteriorate your
vehicle’s performance, fuel economy, and the emission control system. Always use
MMT-free gasoline if available. Failures caused by use of gasoline containing MMT
may not be covered under warranty.
• “TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline” meets a new gasoline standard jointly established
by leading automotive manufacturers to meet the needs of today's advanced
engines. In most cases, qualifying gasoline retailers will identify their gasoline as
having met “TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline” standards at the retail location. This
fuel is guaranteed to contain the proper level of detergent additives and be free of
metallic additives. This helps avoid build-up of deposits in your engine and emission
control system. Because the level of detergency and harmful metallic additives
(such as MMT) in gasoline vary in the market, Honda endorses the use of “TOP
TIER Detergent Gasoline” where available to help maintain the performance and
reliability of your vehicle. For more information, visit www.toptiergas.com.
• For further important information on fuel and lubricants for your car and
information on gasoline that does not contain MMT, contact your dealer or visit
Owner Link at owners.honda.com.
