The reason you’re having a hard time trying to open the gas tank on your Nissan Pathfinder 2014 is that it doesn’t have a fuel door release button. Instead, you’ll have to open the gas tank from outside. Here’s how to do that:
  • Turn off your engine
  • Exit the vehicle and keep your vehicle unlocked. Nissan Pathfinders won’t allow you to open the fuel door while locked.
  • Locate the fuel door on the outside of your vehicle
  • Tap on the right side of the fuel door and it will spring open
  • Remove the gas cap by turning it counterclockwise
When it is time to refuel your Pathfinder, you should choose the best gasoline for your model to get the best performance. The Nissan Pathfinder takes regular-grade fuel which is the least expensive option at the pump. If you see anything with an octane rating of 91 or higher at the pump, that is considered Premium gasoline and will be the most expensive option for your Pathfinder.
If you’re looking to save money on gas at the pump, you should use loyalty programs, and avoid rapid acceleration or abrupt braking.
