Capless Fuel Filler (Select Vehicles)

What’s the Benefit?

This design makes refueling easier and more convenient—and helps make it less likely to get fuel on one’s hands or other places it doesn’t belong.

The Feature:

Select vehicles are equipped with a capless fuel filler.

  • This capless system enables drivers to release the door and immediately insert the fuel nozzle—no need to remove a cap or worry about dropping it against the side of the vehicle.
  • After refueling and withdrawing the nozzle, just snap the filler door closed and you’re on your way.

Important Note: When refueling with anything other than a standard filling-station nozzle, a special funnel must be used to avoid damaging the fuel system. The funnel, supplied with each vehicle, is located in the tool tray beneath the cargo-area floor, in a side compartment in the cargo area or, for Ridgeline, in the spare-tire tool case within the In-Bed Trunk®.
