I believe that slack has developed between the release lever ( on the floor left of the driver's seat) and the release latch in the fuel cap recess.
The latch does respond when the lever is pulled, just not enough to release the fuel door.
I can't find any obvious access to the cable connections or an emergency release for the door.

Usually there's a cable running to a lever, near the floor, just left of the driver's seat; you should see it when you open the car door. If the cable breaks, I'm not sure what you can do to get it open. Some shim stock might release the cover if you shove it into the latch side of the cover.
The release cable is sticking or broken. To release the fuel door, open the trunk and pull off the fabric liner on the left side of the trunk. Behind this liner is the fuel door release cable; this cable leads to the fuel door and attaches with a twist-lock connector. It is cylindrical with two tabs. Twist the connector clockwise about 90 degrees and it should pull out, releasing the door.
Just remember, the fuel door will not stay closed until you put the connector back in.
The fuel-filler door release is located on the floor
to the left of the driver.s seat. To open the fuel-
filler door, pull up the release. To lock, close the
fuel-filler door securely.
