    • Same here? We have a rental & even hard to find in the daytime.. it blends in with the trim….hey why not make the little gas tank on the lever white?!

  1. The lever to release the fuel door impossible to find on this Mitsubishi Outlander rental vehicle. Thank you for your webpage which points out where to find it.
