How do you open the gas tank on a Nissan Altima 2015?

Is there a trick to opening the gas tank on a 2015 Nissan Altima? I can’t figure out how to do it, and I’m starting to worry that I might run out of gas before I figure it out.

To open the gas tank on a 2015 Nissan Altima, you’ll need to pull the fuel release lever, which is located to the lower left of the steering wheel. Once you pull this lever, the fuel door on the outside of your car will pop open slightly.
After popping open your gas tank door, you’ll be able to access the gas tank cap. Unscrew this cap and you’ll be able to fill up your tank! When you’re done, just be sure to screw the gas cap back on and close the fuel door.
Some modern vehicles have a fuel door that pops open when you press on it from the outside, but the 2015 model of the Altima doesn’t have this kind of technology. If you want something like that, you’ll need a newer vehicle.
