Open the fuel filler flap and valve
The driver's display in your car uses an arrow to indicate the side on which your fuel filler flap is located.
To open the fuel filler flap and valve, press the button on the instrument panel.
There is pressure equalisation in the fuel tank, which means there is a slight delay when the flap is opened. The message Preparing for refuel and Fuel lid will be unlocked when ready appears in the driver's displayFor XC40 Twin Engine, instead the messages Fuel tank and Fuel filler cap open appear., followed by Fuel tank and Ready for refuelling. Your car is now ready for refuelling.
Note that the valve in the tank may close without prior warning a short while after you have pressed the button to open the fuel filler flap. If the valve closes while you are refuelling, repeat the above step to open the fuel filler flap and valve again.
Tips when refuelling
Press the button to open the fuel filler flap just before you plan to refuel so that you have time to refuel before the valve in the tank is closed.
You can extend the time before the closing of the valve in the tank by leaving the driver's door slightly open while you refuel.
