The link above is for Toyota owners website. If you register there you can get a ton of information about your car, personalized with service records and more. Including warranty information. It has a Q & A forum similar to this one. Have your VIN ready. Anyway, I don't know about removing the gas tank cover, but the owners manual states towing a trailer is not recommended. And " Not recommended" means that if you install a trailer hitch your warranty will be voided. My suggestion is wait until the 36 month/36,000 mile basic warranty has passed before installing a permanent trailer hitch. It's my opinion that your Corolla could easily pull a trailer, a small, light one with a very light tongue weight. The CVT is STILL NOT PROVEN as a reliable transmission and Toyota puts that in to cover their rear. But if/when you do, have it done by a professional, a shop that will know what to do with the gas tank cover.

See Page 157 in your owners manual. If you don't have manual link here:
