How do I open the gas tank on a Volkswagen Jetta from 2014?

My wife is lending me her 2014 Volkswagen Jetta while my car is in the shop. I used it sparingly while she was gone, but I want to refill the tank so she doesn’t have to. I just can’t figure out how to open the gas tank. What do I need to do to access it?

Getting to the gas cap is different in various types of cars, so it’s not surprising that you’re having a bit of trouble! To open the gas tank on a Volkswagen Jetta from 2014, push firmly on the left-hand side of the fuel filler door.
Located on the rear passenger’s side of the vehicle, the fuel filler door is spring-loaded, which should open with a simple push. To lock the fuel filler door when you’re done, press on the door in the same place.
And if you’re ever worried about running out of gas in your car or even your wife’s car, make sure to consider towing and labor coverage on your next car insurance policy.
