Fuel Door Button
 
I have accidently opened the fuel door at least three times by bumping it with my knee while getting in. I don't have really long legs and the seat is always back in the easy entry/exit position. I usually discover it after I've buckled the seat belt. :headbang: Anyone else?

Yep. Once when it was new. I get in more carefully now.

I used to do it all the time too. Like a cold, it went away but I'm not sure how I was doing it.

Never happened to me. Can't see how it would.

Not yet, and I have long-ish legs. Can't see how you'd do it.

You guys must have long legs. I'm 5' 10" and I couldn't even do it while trying to do it yesterday. I must have looked like a dork. :D

I'm 6'1" and never hit it.

Perhaps it's because I don't slide across the seat. I lift up to avoid some issues reported on this forum of getting color dye from jeans on the saddle leather, or wearing it out.

6ft tall and so far have not even come remotely close to hitting that button in the 870 miles I have put on it. Infact, now that I think of it I dont think my legs come anywhere near that button lol. You guys that hit it must have freakisly long legs and/or get in your car in a really awkward way haha :-)

I also get in and out of my Jeep very carefully and still dont come anywhere near that button.

I've done it about three times over the first year of ownership. Not recently though.

Im 6'5" and done it a few times after the shorter wife has driven and I do not adjust the seat. Seems like an afterthought location and button, it just looks out of place.

I have no clue how this is a problem. After reading this thread, I looked at my left kness proximity. I can't even fathom how this could be a fathom no matter how tall you may be.
