Nissan Maxima Owners Manual: Fuel-filler cap

WARNING

  • Gasoline is extremely flammable and highly explosive under certain conditions.

    You could be burned or seriously injured if it is misused or mishandled.

    Always stop the engine and do not smoke or allow open flames or sparks near the vehicle when refueling.

  • Do not attempt to top off the fuel tank after the fuel pump nozzle shuts off automatically. Continued refueling may cause fuel overflow, resulting in fuel spray and possibly a fire.
  • Use only an original equipment type fuel-filler cap as a replacement. It has a built-in safety valve needed for proper operation of the fuel system and emission control system. An incorrect cap can result in a serious malfunction and possible injury. It could also cause the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) to come on.
  • Never pour fuel into the throttle body to attempt to start your vehicle.
  • Do not fill a portable fuel container in the vehicle or trailer. Static electricity can cause an explosion of flammable liquid, vapor or gas in any vehicle or trailer. To reduce the risk of serious injury or death when filling portable fuel containers:
  • Always place the container on the ground when filling.
  • Do not use electronic devices when filling.
  • Keep the pump nozzle in contact with the container while you are filling it.
  • Use only approved portable fuel containers for flammable liquid.

CAUTION

  • Do not use E-15 or E-85 fuel in your vehicle. For additional information, refer to "Fuel recommendation" in the "Technical and consumer information" section of this manual.
  • The LOOSE FUEL CAP warning will appear if the fuel-filler cap is not properly tightened. It may take a few driving trips for the message to be displayed. Failure to tighten the fuel-filler cap properly after the LOOSE FUEL CAP warning appears may cause the   Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) to illuminate.
  • Failure to tighten the fuel-filler cap properly may cause the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) to illuminate.

    If the light illuminates because the fuel-filler cap is loose or missing, tighten or install the cap and continue to drive the vehicle. The  light should turn off after a few driving trips.

    If the light does not turn off after a few driving trips, have the vehicle inspected.

    It is recommended that you visit a NISSAN dealer for this service.

  • For additional information, refer to "Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)" in the "Instruments and controls" section of this manual.
  • If fuel is spilled on the vehicle body, flush it away with water to avoid paint damage.
