How do you open the gas tank on a 2019 BMW X5?
I borrowed my sister’s car and I’m having trouble figuring out how to drive it. To make matters worse, I can’t find the fuel tank lever. Can you tell me how to open the gas tank on a BMW X5 from 2019?

Luxury SUVs may seem more complicated than their entry-level counterparts, but accessing the fuel tank on this BMW is deceptively simple. To open the gas tank on a 2019 BMW X5, simply press and release the exterior fuel tank door. Let’s break that down a little bit for extra clarity.
First things first, just exit the car—there is no fuel tank release lever inside the BMW X5’s cabin. Go around to the gas tank door located on the rear of the left-hand (passenger-side) of the SUV. Once there, press in until you hear a click, then release. The gas tank door should open, allowing you to twist off the cap and top it off as needed!
To close the gas tank door, just press in until you hear a click again and it should lock into place.
If only saving money on gas was this easy! That said, you can get the most efficiency out of your car’s gas tank by topping it off before it gets empty and sticking to a basic car maintenance schedule.

How many Honda Del Sols were made?
My dad used to have a little Honda Del Sol, and he loved it dearly. Unfortunately, he had to sell it for the sake of practicality once my brother was born—I think he still misses it. Anyways, I’m looking for a unique birthday gift for my old man, and the Del Sol seems like a good option. I’m just not sure if any are left on the road. How many Del Sols did Honda make?
