    where is remote gas cap release?

    I am just purchasing an 1988 XJ6 Vanden Plas and cannot figure out where the gas cap release is...I do not have an owner's manual (why do people throw them away??).
    Thanks for any suggestions......

    As far as I understand it when the car is unlocked it should just be a matter of pressing on the flap,
    in fact you can usually hear the solenoid operating,Some of these models also came with a lever in
    the boot that allowed it to be opened manually. I hope that helps, its many years since I owned one
    so I speak from memory rather than any recent experience.All the best.
