No button to open the gas tank lid. As long your doors are open the lid will be open, doors locked the gas tank lid will be locked too.

The answer is press gas lid and it pops open. Make sure doors are unlocked. There is no button on the inside anywhere.

Yep, you wouldn't think, but the gas lid is locked if the car doors are locked. Once you unlock the doors push inwards on the right side of the gas lid and the left side will lift up.
