As I recall, it is in the left footwell.  I think there is a step in the
vinyl kick panel which reveals the metal for the tunnel itself.  There is a
rubber plug that you pull out and then can reach the fill plug on the
gearbox.  Long funnel, and don't spill any of that oil in the interior.

As I recall, you need NON-detergent MOTOR oil for this.  30 weight.  Often
sold for lawnmowers.

This is all from memory, as I sold my Spridget in 1991.
