    How far can I drive when the tank is completely empty? The odometer says 59.2 miles right now. I'm also having a problem opening the tank door.

Yes, I'm sure the owner's manual shows how to do this. Usually one of the panels in the trunk. Take them off to check, but I would consult the manual first.

I am having difficulty opening the cover to the gas cap. The switch on the drivers side door won't release the external door so that I can remove the gas cap and fill my tank. HELP


The cable release for the gas door may have broken, try reading the Owner's Manual for a alternative way to release the door or call your local Volkswagen Dealer and ask to speak to someone in the Body Shop or a Service Technician to give you a solution.

2002 passat wagon 1.8T Fuel door won't open, how to manually open. running out of gas


the problem is the fuel door release switch in the driver's door or the actuator. I have seen the switch wear out but I've only heard rumors of the actuator dying. There is a contact inside the switch that may be touching or not touch when the switch is pulled. Compare to the trunk release switch. as for manually opening it... it is quite a simple system however no manual cable to pull. If you pry at the carpeting behind rear seats you'll be able to access that area it is possible to manually open it. It's always possible that it is frozen though so maybe try some hot water or pulling it into a garage if you have one.
