It can be tricky to open a fuel tank if you’re unsure which buttons to press or if there are even buttons to press. Fortunately, opening the gas tank on the 2017 Toyota Corolla is simpler than you might think.
Follow the steps below to get fueling:
  • Open the driver’s side door
  • Locate a lever marked with a gas tank graphic on the driver’s side floorboard (Hint: it’s near the door jamb!)
  • Pull up on the lever to release the gas tank panel
  • Exit the vehicle, open the gas tank panel, and remove the gas cap
There you have it. You’re ready to get fueling! Before you hit the road with your fresh tank, ensure that you’ve covered Toyota with rental car insurance for your trip. If you already have car insurance, rental insurance may be unnecessary, but ensuring you’re protected on the road never hurts.
