  • C8 manual fuel door release?

    Refueling my C7 this evening had me wondering if GM listened to everyone and added an "manual fuel door release" in case there is a failure of the electronic mechanism. Perhaps adding the release to the manual door release would work.

        I could also ask, what cars have two door releases? Point being there have been some failures but mostly concerns regarding the unlocking fuel doors on the C7. It would be nice for a failsafe, or just make it manual altogether.

          I had two Fords with an electric release (in the glove compartment, so you could lock it) with a backup pull tab in the trunk in case the electric one failed.

          And while the C6 may have had a manual release in the trunk, the C7 didn't.
