How do you open the gas tank on Volkswagen Golf?

My uncle gave me his Volkswagen Golf and my gas is running low but I don’t know how to access the tank. How do you open the gas tank on Volkswagen Golf?

Lucky for you, opening the gas tank on a Volkswagen Golf is easy. Here’s how:
  • Step outside your car
  • Locate the small rectangular door on the right-hand side of your car
  • Push on the door to reveal the gas cap
  • Unscrew the gas cap turning counterclockwise
When you go to the gas station, choose the best gasoline for your specific Volkswagen Golf model year and trim level.
For example, if your Golf is equipped with a turbocharged engine, premium gas may be worth the price since turbocharged engines run best on gasoline with high octane rating.
