It can be a bit tricky to find the fuel release lever on the Kia Soul. I know I had a problem finding it when I rented one. Here’s how you can release the fuel door and get to fueling the vehicle.
1. Look deep under the driver’s side seat near the door. You will find a fuel door release lever. Pull this lever up to pop the fuel door open.
2. Walk to the rear of the vehicle and open the door. Turn the gas cap counter clockwise to open and proceed with fueling.
Note: If the fuel door fails to open, you may need to prop the lever using a pen or other device. You can also use a credit card to attempt to pry the door open.
