Opening the gas tank on a 2022 Subaru Outback is simple, but you will have to make sure the vehicle is unlocked first. To do this, either press the “unlock” button on your key fob or press the unlock side of the power door locking switch.
Once the car is unlocked, exit the vehicle and walk to the fuel fill door. Press in on the rear center edge of the door and allow it to automatically spring open. Pull the fuel door open the rest of the way and unscrew the fuel filler cap by turning it counterclockwise. Set the cap in the holder on the inside of the fuel door and you’re ready to refuel.
When you’ve finished refueling, screw the fuel fill cap back into place. It should make an audible “click” when it locks. Firmly close the fuel filler door to make sure that it latches. (Your Subaru will usually require at least 87 octane fuel—usually the least expensive type available at the pump.)
Congratulations on your new Outback! The Outback is a great SUV that consistently receives praise from experts like Car and Driver. Some of its pros include high ground clearance and good MPG to make city driving or off-the-beaten path adventures easy. And given its affordable price tag, you’re likely to enjoy decent car insurance rates compared to more luxury brands.
