I just bought a 2000 jeep cherokee sport and need to fille the gas tank.
However, I can not find the lever to release the gas door. on my other vehicles the lever is at the bottom of the drivers seat or easily found any how.

don't know if they changed it for the 2000, but my 97 sport has no lever, just go open it with your hand...

theres your answer!

Mine can be a bit tricky some times, I'll just stick my key in the slot facing the rear of the jeep and pull it open that way. Or just press on the very edge of the door facing the front of the jeep and that will leverage it open. But I don't have fat fingers so I don't find it a problem most times to just open it...

Haha, I thought I might have one of those, too, considering they are now common and I have a 2001 (that's new, right?). I think I just press my thumb onto the left side and finger tips onto the right when the thumb pressure lifts it a bit.

I had the same problem when I got mine...there is no lever. All you do is push on the left side with your fingers and pull on the right side with your thumb or other hand. Luckily for me, I happened to know a Petroleum Distribution Engineer and he deals with these all the time
