How do I open and close the fuel tank?

The fuel tank is accessed through the fuel door on the left side of your vehicle. To add more fuel, you have to unscrew the fuel cap. The fuel cap unscrews counter-clockwise, just like the lid of a jar. To put the fuel cap back on after refilling, screw it on clockwise until you hear it click. That means that the fuel cap is securely latched.
