How do I open the gas tank on a 2004 Mitsubishi Galant

I just bought a used 2004 Mitsubishi Galant this weekend, and I’ve been driving myself crazy trying to find the gas tank release lever! Forgive me, but how do I open the gas tank on a 2004 Mitsubishi Galant?

No problem—it’s not always intuitive and gas tanks are different from car to car. But opening the gas tank on a 2004 Mitsubishi Galant is as easy as pie once you learn how to do it.
First off, there’s no gas tank release lever! Just turn off your engine first and hop out of your sedan. Then, all you have to do is press on the far right side of the gas tank door. And that’s all there is to it! Now you can fill up your 2004 Mitsubishi Galant’s 17.7-gallon gas tank and hit the road!
