How do you open the gas cap on a Toyota Corolla?

How do I open the gas cap on my daughter’s Toyota Corolla? She’s letting me use it this week. I want to fill up the tank before I give it back, but I haven’t driven in a long time and I can’t remember how to open the gas cap.

It’s so sweet of your daughter to let you use her car–and so nice of you to fill up her tank! You can open the gas cap on her Toyota Corolla by following these instructions:
  • First, lift the fuel lever, which is right next to the driver’s side door under the seat.
  • Get out of the car and open the fuel door the rest of the way.
  • Reach inside and turn the gas cap counterclockwise until it comes loose.
  • Let the gas cap hang by the fuel door as you fill up the tank.
  • When you replace the gas cap, make sure it clicks to indicate that it’s been fully locked in place.
  • Finally, press the fuel door back into place.
