Answers from the Automotive Experts

Thank you for writing in. The MAP sensor, or manifold absolute pressure sensor, is also known as the barometric pressure sensor. It is typically located near the engine air intake, but in this case it has been relocated to the fuel filler tube. Look behind the wheel well towards your fuel filler tube, and you will see it mounted with a single screw/bolt. Good luck!
