Nissan Sentra 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 Indicator Light 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.

  • Do not use electronic devices when filling.

  • Use only approved portable fuel containers for flammable liquid.
