Well, Leaf comes with comfort access functionality. That means you don't have to use the fob to open the central lock nor
have to stick the key in the ignition hole and turn. Though they forgot comfort access functionality on the 6th door.
Philosophically, this is a scam. You promise a comfort access but actually limiting one function. On purpose.
It could be acceptable for an ICE vehicle where refill door is used once a week. But not on EV, where fuel filler door is used more
often than passenger door, rear doors and rear hatch all combined.
My 2001 BMW has a fuel filler door that locks with central lock. If car is unlocked, the fuel filler is just open, like a regular car door.
You touch it and it pops. You turn the cap and it opens. No-brainer. If doors are locked the fuel filler door is locked. The end.
How hard can it be? For 7 f*cking years Nissan does it wrong
