How do I open the gas tank on an Audi Q3?

I just bought a brand-spanking-new Audi Q3 and wow, it’s *beautiful*! Are there any quirks I should know about? Where’s the gas tank located?

Congratulations on the excellent new car purchase! We agree, that Audi is sleek. To open the gas tank on an Audi Q3, simply follow these steps:
  • First things first, make sure the car is off and unlocked.
  • Next, approach the rear passenger side door of the car and locate the fuel door.
  • Press and release the left side of the fuel door. It should pop open easily.
  • From there, you’ll see the gas tank cap. Twist the cap counterclockwise to open it and then hitch it to the fuel door to keep it out of the way.
That’s all there is to it! Audi has made many technological advancements to its vehicles over the years, but it’s kept the process of locating and opening the gas tank easy as pie. We’re grateful for that!
By the way, make sure to use only Premium Unleaded Gasoline in your Audi Q3. It may be tempting to opt for a lesser grade, but doing so may cause engine trouble to your Q3 down the line. We’re sure you agree that a car that pretty needs to be taken care of!
Have fun driving that great new car!
