How do you open the gas tank on a 2011 Infiniti G37? I’ve tried everything, but I still can’t get mine open. I’m starting to wonder if I wasn’t cut out to buy a used car.

Opening an Infiniti gas door can feel deceptively tricky if you haven’t needed to do so before. To open the gas tank door on a 2011 Infiniti G37, you won’t find a typical fuel door release button. But you’ll still need to unlock it first. Here’s how.
There are several ways to open the gas tank door on the 2011 G37. You can:
  • Press the unlock button on your driver’s side door
  • Press the unlock button on your Intelligent Key fob
  • Insert your mechanical key into your door lock, turning the key toward the rear of the vehicle
  • Press the door handle request switch with your Intelligent Key with you
After you’ve unlocked the fuel filler door, you can go ahead and open it, but how to do so depends on whether your Infiniti G37 is a coupe or sedan:
  • On the G37 sedan, press the right side of the fuel door to open it.
  • On the G37 coupe, press the left side of the fuel filler door.
Turn the fuel filler cap counterclockwise to remove it. After you’ve filled your tank, replace the fuel filler cap and close the fuel door until it latches shut. Locking your vehicle with your fob or power door switch will lock the fuel door again, too.
If you can’t get your gas tank door to open, you could have a problem with the locking mechanism or another component. If you can’t get it unstuck yourself, you might want to enlist the help of a mechanic to avoid damaging the fuel door.
