Gone are the day when opening your gas tank to fuel your vehicle required a simple manual opening of the door to reveal the cap, and a few simple twists — and just like that, you were ready to fill your tank. Currently, opening the fuel compartment of most newer vehicles isn’t quite so easy, and it may take some help from the owner’s manual or a demonstration to make the magic happen. Luckily, we’ve got a simple guide to assist you with opening the gas tank on your Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross that should keep you out of the service department.

Getting the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Gas Tank Open

Certain gas tanks and caps are more confusing than others to remove. This isn’t a bad thing, as you want your fuel compartment sealed as tightly as possible, so you’re not losing any fuel economy. However, when you’re unable to get the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross gas tank open when you’re on the spot, things can get pretty frustrating. Luckily, after you find the gas tank door release lever, life gets much easier. Use the following steps to find the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross gas cap release: 

  1. Place your attention on the floor area to the left of where the driver’s left foot goes. 
  2. You should spot a little lever that you can pull upward. 
  3. Gently lift the lever, and the fuel compartment should open immediately. 
  4. Make your way to the open fuel compartment and twist the cap counter-clockwise, and it should open fairly easily. 

It’s as simple as that! What about when you finally get the cap open? What’s the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross gas tank size?
