Here’s How You Open Fuel Door/Gas Cap On Hyundai Elantra (2010-2022)

How To Open Fuel Door/Gas Cap On Hyundai Elantra

Time needed: 1 minute.

To access the gas tank on a Hyundai Elantra, you have to look for the lever that releases the tank door. This is for a 2020 Elantra, but it will be the same for many years (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022). So here we go.

  1. Look under the driver’s seat

    You’ll notice that the gas cap doesn’t just open by itself and so in order to open it you’re going to go right next to the driver’s seat

  2. Pull the gas door release lever

    There’s a lever with a gas pump icon, you need to pull that, and then you’ll notice that the gas door is now open

  3. Open the fuel cap

    To refuel, it literally just pulls it open and then unscrew the cap so you can fill it up 

  4. Close the gas tank door

    Once it did, you’re going to close it and get it locked into position

How To Figure Out Where The Gas Tank Position

In addition, we’d like to provide some pointers for finding the gas tank position without leaving the car. Stop at the gas station without hesitation and it will be easier with this trick.

So there is a handy tiny triangle on the side of the small gasoline pump emblem on the dash that tells you which side of the car you should fill up. You can tell where the fuel door is situated by looking at the small triangle.
