How do I open the gas tank on a 2012 GMC Yukon?

Is there some trick to opening the gas tank on a 2012 GMC Yukon? It doesn’t seem to open like any of my previous vehicles and I don’t see any kind of release lever for the fuel door in the cabin.

This type of gas tank opening can indeed be tricky, but once you know what you’re supposed to do, it becomes much easier. To open the gas tank on a 2012 GMC Yukon, all you have to do is push on the rear side of the fuel door. When you release the push, the fuel door will have popped open enough for you to swing the door the rest of the way. Then unscrew the gas cap by turning it counterclockwise.
And that’s it! Start filling your tank with the best fuel choice for your vehicle, turn the gas cap clockwise to screw it back on, and you can hit the road again!
