How Do You Put Gas In?

Has anyone tried putting gas in from a gas can? Does not work, due to the rapid gas feature. Do we need some attachment? Thanks.

yes there should be a funnel to manually put gas in. I think it is with the spare tire area.

From the manual

Quote:
1. Locate the white plastic funnel. It
is clipped onto the spare tire
compartment.

Looks like they answered this for you above. Just in case, contact me with any further questions. Hope you were able to work this out already.

My salesman suggested you put the funnel back into a plastic bag after using it so it doesn't give off gas smell inside your vehicle.
