How do I open the gas tank on a Toyota Avalon?
I recently purchased a Toyota Avalon and I love it so far. However, it’s been sitting in my driveway for the past two days because of one major issue: I have no idea how to open the gas tank! What do I do to open the gas tank?

Unlike other cars, the Toyota Avalon doesn’t have any buttons or levers to pop the gas tank open, which makes it a bit more confusing! Fortunately, you can open the gas tank just by following these step-by-step instructions:
- Turn off the engine of your Avalon.
- Exit the vehicle.
- Make sure that the car is unlocked.
- Go to the rear driver’s side of the vehicle.
- Press the right-hand side of the fuel filler door. It’s spring-loaded, so it should pop right open.
- When you’re done refueling, close the fuel filler door by pressing on the same spot.
