How do you open the gas tank on a 2019 Ford Edge?

After flying to New Mexico for a weekend getaway, my wife and I decided to rent a 2019 Ford Edge to travel to the historic towns outside Albuquerque. The problem is, I can’t figure out how to open the gas tank! Any idea how to open the gas tank on a 2019 Ford Edge?

We totally understand—rental cars can be tough to figure out! Luckily, the 2019 Ford Edge gas tank is fairly easy to open once you know how to do it. Just follow these steps to open the Edge’s gas tank:
  • Step one: Locate the fuel door release lever. You’ll find the level located near the driver’s side dooror on the center console.
  • Step two: Pull the fuel door release lever. This will unlock the fuel door and allow you to open it.
  • Step three: Open the fuel door by pulling on the handle. The fuel door is located on the side of the vehicle, near the rear bumper.
  • Step four: Unscrew the fuel cap underneath the door to open the gas tank. Insert the fuel nozzle into the fuel tank and begin fueling your vehicle.
Make sure you fuel up your rental 2019 Ford Edge before the fuel gauge hits “E” to stay safe on the roads!
