Chevy Equinox: How to Open Fuel Door

Wondering how to open the fuel door so that you can access the gas cap on the Chevy Equinox? We were too. Here’s how it’s done.

All Models

  1. Exit the vehicle and go to the fuel door on the side of the car.
  2. Push and release the rear center edge of the fuel door.
  3. The door springs open, revealing the fuel cap.

Like many Chevy vehicles, you should first know that there is no button or latch to release the fuel door from the inside of the Equinox. Instead, you’ll find the fuel door operates in a much simpler way.

Is there a way to lock the fuel door?

If you’re concerned with fuel tampering or theft, your best option would be to purchase a locking fuel cap.

  1. Where do you put the gas cap once you have opened it. I hate to leave it dangling against the vehicle. This is a 2015 Chevy Equinox LT2
