Some new cars don't have an actual gas cap. To fill up, just put the nozzle in the hole. It will open up the flap and you can fill up. HTH. -Jim

yep preaty much all new vehicles have this flap its a preventative from keeping your gas backing up out the cap hole instead if it over fills or backs up it goes out a drain/ air hole.
