Whether you’re renting or just have purchased a Honda Accord, you might be confused the first time you want to fuel up the vehicle. I searched for a fuel door release button or lever inside the vehicle, only to find there wasn’t one. Here’s how to release the fuel door on the Honda Accord.
2018 – 2021 Models
Newer models of the Accord have a capless fuel filler system. Use these steps to open the fuel door.
- Ensure the vehicle doors are unlocked.
- Exit the vehicle, then push on the right side of the fuel door. It will spring open.
- There is no gas cap to open. Insert the pump and start fueling.
Older Accord models will have a fuel door release located on the floor near the driver’s side door. Push the button to release it.
