Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Fuel-Filler Lid and Cap

WARNING When removing the fuel-fi ller cap, loosen the cap slightly and wait for any hissing to stop, then remove it: Fuel spray is dangerous. Fuel can burn skin and eyes and cause illness if ingested. Fuel spray is released when there is pressure in the fuel tank and the fuel-fi ller cap is removed too quickly.

Before refueling, stop the engine, and always keep sparks and fl ames away from the fi ller neck: Fuel vapor is dangerous. It could be ignited by sparks or fl ames causing serious burns and injuries.

Additionally, use of the incorrect fuelfi ller cap or not using a fuel-fi ller cap may result in a fuel leak, which could result in serious burns or death in an accident.

Do not continue refueling after the fuel pump nozzle shuts off automatically: Continuing to add fuel after the fuel pump nozzle has shut off automatically is dangerous because overfi lling the fuel tank may cause fuel overfl ow or leakage. Fuel overfl ow and leakage could damage the vehicle and if the fuel ignites it could cause a fi re and explosion resulting in serious injury or death.

CAUTION Always use only a genuine Mazda fuelfi ller cap or an approved equivalent, available at an Authorized Mazda Dealer. The wrong cap can result in a serious malfunction of the fuel and emission control systems. It may also cause the check engine light in the instrument cluster to illuminate.
