How do I open the gas tank on a 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage?

I recently bought a used car. It’s time for my first fill-up, but I can’t find the fuel door release button. How do you open the fuel door on a 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage?

Learning all the tricks on a new-to-you car can be challenging, so we’re happy to help. You’re actually going to be looking for a lever, though, not a button. To open the gas tank on a 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage, just follow these simple steps:
  • Open the driver’s side door
  • Find the fuel release lever on the floorboard near the door jamb (it’ll be marked with a gas tank graphic, so you can’t miss it)
  • Pull up on the lever
Et voila! You can proceed to fill up your car. You’ll be happy to learn that you won’t be filling up as often as you might think either—your Mirage is capable of up to 44 mpg on the highway and 37 mpg in the city.
Plus, Mitsubishi doesn’t have any specific recommendations for the type of fuel you should use with your Mirage—just as long as it’s unleaded, you’re good to go. That means there’s no need to spring for high-octane premium fuels.
