If the vehicle has a diesel engine, see [linkin] the Duramax diesel supplement.

An arrow on the fuel gauge indicates which side of the vehicle the fuel door is on. See [linkin] Fuel Gauge 0 129..

[symbolwarning] Warning.

Fuel vapors and fuel fires burn violently and can cause injury or death.

Follow these guidelines to help avoid injuries to you and others:

• Read and follow all the instructions on the fuel pump island.

• Turn off the engine when refueling.

• Keep sparks, flames, and smoking materials away from fuel.

• Do not leave the fuel pump unattended.

• Avoid using electronic devices while refueling.

• Do not re-enter the vehicle while pumping fuel.

• Keep children away from the fuel pump and never let children pump fuel.

• Before touching the fill nozzle, touch a metallic object to discharge static electricity from your body.

• Fuel can spray out if the fill nozzle is inserted too quickly. This spray can happen if the tank is nearly full, and is more likely in hot weather. Insert the fill nozzle slowly and wait for any hiss noise to stop before beginning to flow fuel.

The capless refueling system does not have a fuel cap. Fully insert and latch the fill nozzle, begin fueling..

[symbolwarning] Warning.

Overfilling the fuel tank by more than three clicks of a standard fill nozzle may cause:

• Vehicle performance issues, including engine stalling and damage to the fuel system.

• Fuel spills.

• Under certain conditions, fuel fires.

Be careful not to spill fuel. Wait five seconds after you have finished pumping before removing the fill nozzle. Clean fuel from painted surfaces as soon as possible. See Exterior Care 0 424. Push the fuel door closed..

[symbolwarning] Warning.

If a fire starts while you are refueling, do not remove the fill nozzle. Shut off the flow of fuel by shutting off the pump or by notifying the station attendant.

Leave the area immediately.

Filling the Tank with a Portable Fuel Container.

If the vehicle runs out of fuel and must be filled from a portable fuel container:

1. Locate the capless funnel adapter.

2. Insert and latch the funnel into the capless fuel system..

[symbolwarning] Warning.

Attempting to refuel from a portable fuel container without using the funnel adapter may cause fuel spillage and damage the capless fuel system. This could cause a fire. You or others could be badly burned and the vehicle could be damaged.

3. Remove and clean the funnel adapter and return it to the storage location.
