Getting used to all the bells and whistles of a new-to-you car is part of the excitement—but not when it’s keeping you from refueling your car! Luckily, the fuel tank release on a BMW X3 is deceptively easy. To open the gas tank on a 2007 BMW X3 just press and release the gas tank door.
The 2007 BMW X3 doesn’t have an interior fuel tank release lever or button like some other cars. Instead, you can just push the fuel tank door until you hear a click, then release it and watch it glide open. Then, just unscrew the gas tank cap and fill ‘er up!
To close the gas tank on a 2007 BMW X3, just re-screw the gas tank cap and push the door in until you hear that click to lock it. Saving money on gas may not be as easy in the X3.
