How do you open the gas tank on a 2016 Lexus RX 350?

My parents are in town, and my friend loaned me their Lexus so I’d have something nice to drive them around in. I plan on returning it clean as a whistle and with a full tank of gas, but here’s the deal—I don’t know how to get the gas tank open! How do I open the gas tank on a 2016 Lexus RX 350?

We’ve got your back! Open the gas tank on a 2016 Lexus RX 350 by pressing the fuel door release button on the far driver’s side of the dashboard. The owner’s manual for the Lexus RX 350 states that there may be a few seconds between when you press the button and when the fuel door pops open, so don’t panic if nothing happens right away.
Make sure you fill up with the correct kind of gas for a Lexus RX 350 as well. The RX 350 doesn’t require premium fuel, so a regular unleaded with a minimum of 87 octanes should be fine.
