Congratulations on picking up your new car! To open the gas tank on a 2022 Cadillac XT5, push and release the rearward center edge of the door and it will pop open. The fuel door will be locked when the car is locked, so remember to unlock your car before fueling.
Here’s a quick tip to help you: If you look on your dashboard where the fuel light is, you’ll find a small arrow indicating which side of the vehicle the fuel door is on!
When you’ve opened the fuel tank door, don’t be surprised that the XT5 doesn’t have a gas cap. The new XT5s have a capless refueling system, so all you have to do is fully insert and latch the fill nozzle to begin fueling.
Once you’ve finished pumping, wait a few seconds before removing the nozzle. If you spill any fuel on the car’s painted surface, clean it as soon as possible. In addition, be careful as to not overfill the tank by more than three clicks. Doing so can lead to the following:
  • Vehicle performance issues (engine stalling and damage to the fuel system)
  • Fuel spills
  • Fuel fire
