How do you open the gas tank on a Nissan Armada from 2020?

Where is the gas tank release for a 2020 Nissan Armada? I recently upgraded vehicles and I can’t figure out how to open the gas tank. What am I missing?

It can be tricky learning your way around a new car! To open the gas tank on a Nissan Armada from 2020, you’ll need to follow these steps:
  1. Put your car in park and turn off the engine. Your vehicle should not be on in any capacity while you access the gas tank.
  2. Make sure that your car is unlocked.
  3. Exit your vehicle and approach your closed exterior fuel door.
  4. Press gently on the fuel door until you hear a click. This should release your fuel door and allow you to access the gas cap underneath.
  5. Swing the fuel door fully open and unscrew your gas cap. This will give you full access to the gas tank!
If this process doesn’t work, the first thing to check is that your car is unlocked. If your vehicle is locked, your fuel door will be locked, too—this means that pressing on your fuel door won’t work, no matter how carefully you do it! This safety mechanism is in place to prevent strangers from tampering with your gas tank, but it can get in your way if you forget to unlock your car.
