Don’t feel bad! Many people have had the same issue.
To open the gas tank door on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, look under the headlight switch on the driver’s side dash to find the gas tank door release button, give it a push, and the gas tank door should unlatch for you.
If that doesn’t work, you can release the fuel tank door with the emergency release. Remove the storage container on the rear driver’s side in the cargo area to access the emergency release strap. Give that a pull and your fuel tank door should unlatch.
When it comes to the fuel tank door release, Jeep has kept Grand Cherokee owners on their toes over the last decade. From 2011 to 2018, Jeep fashioned the Grand Cherokee with a push-button release as described above. But, on Grand Cherokee models produced from 2019 to the present, there is no gas tank door release button or lever.
To open the gas tank on those models, all you have to do is push on the rear edge of the gas tank door itself, and the door should unlatch—which has only led to more confusion. Some newer models are also equipped with an emergency release strap similar to the one described above.
