If you recently purchased, rented, or borrowed a 2019 Nissan Sentra, you may be wondering how to open the gas tank. Well, it’s not as hard as it seems. Let’s take a look.
To open the gas tank on a 2019 Nissan Sentra, pull the small lever with a picture of a fuel pump on it.
Where is the gas tank button on the 2019 Nissan Sentra?
To find the gas tank lever, look to the lower left of the steering wheel. Down slightly below the height of your left knee, you’ll find two small levers. One has a picture of the hood opening, the other has a picture of a fuel pump. Pull the latter, and the gas tank door should pop right open.
Once You Get That Gas Inside, You May Be Wondering: Is the 2019 Nissan Sentra a fuel-efficient vehicle?
What if the gas tank door does not open on a Nissan vehicle?
Occasionally, a gas tank door may be bent inside in such a way that it does not pop open when the lever is pulled. This is something you should look at fixing yourself by bending the metal back into a usable position, but until you do that, there is a temporary fix you can use to get the door open and fuel up.
To get a stuck gas tank door open, have a passenger (hopefully you have one of those; if not you might need a stranger) pull the fuel door lever. At the same time they pull the lever, wedge your key or other strong thin item through the fuel door crack and push the door out. If you time it right, you should be able to pop the door open.
Be warned that this may cause some further minor bending/flaking to your fuel tank door or the item you use to wedge it open (be especially careful if using your key). This should only be used as a temporary emergency method before you manage to get your fuel door working normally again.
