Default How do you open the door over the gas cap?

Is there a button to push? I have a rental Kia Rio and I can't fill it up before returning. Thank you for your help.

I finally found it on the floor close to the driver's door!

Yeah, they can be tricky to find. One rental I had there was no button, nothing. -You just had to press the flap intself while the car was unlocked. Took a while to discover that. Ford strikes again!

Had an Alfa with a non-intuitive petrol cap; there was a key to LOCK the internals of the cap, then you could remove it, otherwise it would simply spin. That took a while to figure out as well; at one stage, I had a helpful garage attendant advancing on my new car with a jemmy bar. No thanks!
