How do I open the gas tank on a 2022 Hyundai Tucson?

My 2022 Hyundai Tucson is great. I’ve never had a new car before so I feel absolutely treated…except I can’t figure out how to put gas in it. My previous cars just had a fuel door I could pull open but it doesn’t seem like pulling on the Tucson's fuel door is doing anything. How can I get this gas tank open?

I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying your new car so much, and I’m sorry you’re having trouble with the gas tank. Let’s make you a pro real quick so you can go back to new car bliss.
To open the gas tank on a 2022 Hyundai Tucson, just do the following:
  • Pull the fuel door release lever which can be found inside the vehicle near the floor of your driver’s seat
  • Go around to the side of your vehicle containing your gas tank and pull the fuel door the rest of the way open
  • Turn the gas cap counterclockwise to open the tank so you can begin filling
Once you’re done filling your 2022 Tucson up with the correct type of fuel, screw the gas cap back on (clockwise this time) and shut the fuel door. Now you’re ready to hit the road again!
