How do you open the gas tank on a Nissan Versa from 2017?

My mom is letting me borrow her car and I’m too embarrassed to ask her how to fill up the gas tank. How can I open the fuel door on a 2017 Nissan Versa?

Driving a borrowed car can have a steep learning curve! To open the gas tank on a Nissan Versa from 2017, you’ll need to pull the fuel door release lever. This lever is located right next to the lever for popping the hood of your car and is marked with a fuel pump icon.
You should see this lever immediately if you look to the lower left of your steering wheel but, if you have some difficulty, don’t hesitate to consult the owner’s manual. The manual will have lots of information about the car’s various parts, including the fuel door release lever.
Once your fuel door is unlocked, you can exit the vehicle and swing the fuel door open. From there, simply unscrew the gas cap in order to access and fill up your mom’s gas tank. Just make sure to fully tighten and close up the fuel tank when you’re finished!
