So you just bought a new Ford Mustang, or you have a rental car, and you’re at the gas station? Trying to put your first tank of gas in your Ford Mustang, and you can’t figure out how to release that gas cap or fuel door there.
Well, don’t feel bad because I did the same thing when buying this car. I pulled into the gas station, and I could not find the release lever for this. Well, that’s because there isn’t a release lever for it. So let me guide you through the procedure.
How To Release The Fuel Door/Gas Cap On Ford Mustang
Time needed: 1 minute.
Today, I have a 2017 Ford Mustang, and I’m going to show you how to open up the gas tank fuel door on this particular vehicle. It’s a pretty simple process, so let me do that now.
Unlock your car
First, make sure your car is unlocked and you’re going to go to the driver’s side of the vehicle and look for this the circle here where the fuel door is
Push the cover
Then you’re going to put your fingers right towards the back of the vehicle on this little circle and give it a nice firm push so you’ll be able to open it up
There’s no gas cap so you just need to put the nozzle inside of there and fuel up your gasoline
Close the fuel door
Once you’re done you’ll close it put your fingers back on the back of it and you’ll feel it lock back into place
So that’s how you open up the gas tank fuel door on this car (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 model years). If this content has been useful, guys, please leave a comment below; that’d be much appreciated. Thanks for your time, and have a good time.
