Is the opening of your vehicle's fuel door controlled from inside or outside of the vehicle...

Our Hondas both are contolled from inside the vehicles..........

I like it that way, I find it safer that way.......

Both, opened from inside and closed from outside, probably normal I guess. Like my vehicles hood/trunk lid. Power antennas, what will they think of next..... Instant cabin heat as soon as the engine is started/running, that would be "GRAND" X 10....... Seriously! ! !

GrumpyCat says "On my Tesla the charging door can be opened from inside but also if one has the key and the charging plug in hand a button on the plug sends an RF signal to the car and pops the charging door open. "

On my SUV when the doors are unlocked one can open the fuel door from the outside. There is no way to pop it open from inside.

On my Tesla the charging door can be opened from inside but also if one has the key and the charging plug in hand a button on the plug sends an RF signal to the car and pops the charging door open.

I like this feature and like the secure feeling you get that nothing can go in or out of the gas tank without you knowing about it..........
