Dodge Nitro: Adding fuel
Fuel Filler Cap (Gas Cap)
The gas cap is located behind the fuel filler door, on the driverвЂ™s side of the vehicle. If the gas cap is lost or damaged, be sure the replacement cap has been designed for use with this vehicle.
Fuel Filler Cap
вЂў Damage to the fuel system or emission control system could result from using an improper fuel cap (gas cap). A poorly fitting cap could let impurities into the fuel system. Also, a poorly fitting aftermarket cap can cause the вЂњMalfunction Indicator Light (MIL)вЂќ to illuminate, due to fuel vapors escaping from the system.
вЂў A poorly fitting gas cap may cause the MIL to turn on.
вЂў To avoid fuel spillage and overfilling, do not вЂњtop offвЂќ the fuel tank after filling.
вЂў Never have any smoking materials lit in or near the vehicle when the gas cap is removed or the tank filled.
вЂў Never add fuel when the engine is running. This is in violation of most state and federal fire regulations and will cause the MIL to turn on.
вЂў A fire may result if gasoline is pumped into a portable container that is inside of a vehicle. You could be burned. Always place gas containers on the ground while filling.
вЂў When the fuel nozzle вЂњclicksвЂќ or shuts off, the fuel tank is full.
вЂў Tighten the gas cap about one quarter turn until you hear one click. This is an indication that the cap is properly tightened.
вЂў If the gas cap is not tightened properly, the MIL will come on. Be sure the gas cap is tightened every time the vehicle is refueled.
Loose Fuel Filler Cap Message
If the vehicle diagnostic system determines that the fuel filler cap is loose, improperly installed, or damaged, a gASCAPвЂќ message will display in the odometer or a вЂњCHECK GASCAPвЂќ message will be displayed in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC). Refer to вЂњElectronic Vehicle Information CenterвЂќ in вЂњUnderstanding Your Instrument PanelвЂќ for further information. Tighten the fuel filler cap until a вЂњclickingвЂќ sound is heard. This is an indication that the fuel filler cap is properly tightened. Refer to вЂњOnboard Diagnostic SystemвЂќ in вЂњMaintaining Your VehicleвЂќ for further information.
