The BMW i8 Hybrid is a phenomenal vehicle. Few vehicles on the road today can compete with its exotic design, and even less can boast the same amount of comfort for their driver and passengers. While the BMW i8 is a leader in many of these regards, it is not without a few quirks. One quirk in particular is frustrating to both vehicle owners and renters alike is the sticky fuel door that will leave you stranded at the pump.
In an attempt to produce “The Ultimate Driving Machine” BMW has pressurized the entire fuel system of the i8 hybrid. When you push the fuel door release button on the drivers door, a message will appear on the dashboard stating “Preparing To Refuel”. On rare occasion this message will stay on the dash, and the door will not open. If this ever happens to you, follow these simple steps to quickly open the fuel door.
