If you can’t manually open a gas door from the outside, that most likely means there’s a lever or button inside the car that will open it for you.
Here is how to open the gas door on a Toyota:
  • Open the driver’s side door and look under the seat
  • Find the fuel filler door opener under the driver’s seat and lift up
  • Pull up on the lever until you hear the gas door unlatch
  • Go to the outside of the car and manually open the gas door until it opens fully
Now you can fill up the tank! Once you know where to look, it’s easy to get what you need—just like shopping for car insurance with Jerry.
