How do you open the gas tank on a BMW 430i?

I just got a BMW 430i, and I’m trying to figure out how to open the fuel tank, but I can’t find a release button. How do I open it?

To open the gas tank on a
430i, ensure the car is turned OFF and the doors are unlocked, then gently press the edge of the fuel tank door to open. Once the door is open, unscrew the cap by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it out to remove it.
You’ll find a convenient holder for the cap inside the fuel door panel. To close, replace the fuel tank cap by turning it clockwise. You’ll hear a click when it’s back in place. Gently close the fuel door and secure it with a light push.
