The i3 is a little (well, maybe a bit more!) weird in that, since the REx isn't run regularly, to help keep the fuel from degrading, the tank is pressurized. That has two issues, one maintaining pressure, and two, releasing it so you can safely open the cap to refill it.

My needs didn't seem to warrant the REx, so I opted to bypass it and bought the BEV version...cheaper, lighter, more efficient, fewer bits to fail. Hasn't been an issue in over 5-years, but that's me.
i3 is super weird jadna!! LOL

Car still at the Service Dept. First it was that fuel tank valve, now they are saying it is a "carbon/charcoal" canister.

Car is about 3 weeks old and only has a few hundred miles. 2019 i3S Rex. I am not too happy :(
