How do you open the gas tank on a Lexus RX 300?

My sister lent me her Lexus RX 300 while my car is in the shop getting repairs. I appreciate having a car while mine can’t be driven, but I can’t figure out how to open the gas tank. Do you know how to open the gas tank on a Lexus RX 300?

The Lexus RX 300 has a sleek, minimalistic gas tank design that stumps many drivers, so you’re not alone! Here’s how to open the gas tank on a Lexus RX 300:
  • Step one: Locate the fuel door on the left side of the RX 300, near the rear bumper of your car.
  • Step two: Gently push the fuel door in as if it were a button. Then, pull the fuel door open.
  • Step three: Unscrew the gas cap underneath the fuel door to access the gas tank.
Now, you’re ready to fuel up! Make sure to fill up your gas tank before your fuel gauge hits “E,” and always screw the cap back on and close the fuel door before driving away from the pump.
