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.

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.

To open the fuel door, simply exit the vehicle and push the rear portion of the fuel door inward. The door will then spring open allowing you access to the gas cap.

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
