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.

You will need to remove your seat in the back of the car. The pump is under the drivers side rear back seat. You will have to remove the floor cover. You should see a panel. remove panel on floor and you will see the top of the fuel pump. There may be a lock ring holding it in which you would move counter clockwise and then the pump should come out
Yes, it has a switch that shuts the fuel off in a crash, It has to be reset manually, On the left shock tower, a little black box with a rubber cover, push in on the cover, it should klik. Check it out. Hope this helps.
I have a 2007 Hyudai Santa Fe and had the same problem this morning. I wasn't sure what to do and couldn't find any solutions mentioning this, so I thought I would.
My tank wasn't frozen or anything and the cable tension seemed fine. If you go to the trunk there should be an access panel on the left side wall behind the tank (has a picture of a fuel pump on it), open this up and you will see an emergency fuel tank pull cord which will open the tank. Once I opened mine, I found that the little cord that holds the gas cap on was jammed in the door hinge. I tested it a few times with the "normal" release on the driver side door and it works fine now.
The gas filter is located inside the gas tank in a 2005 Santa Fe. It is part of the fuel pump assembly located in the left side of the gas tank. It can be located by removing the left rear seat, folding a panel in the carpet out of the way, and removing a small metal plate in the floor.
i had a problem not unlike this in my santa fe 1.9td uk spec. my car had been sitting for a few months and when i returned to drive it again the same problem came to light. i also rep[lsaced the key fob. it could be one of two things. firstly the systen might neen re-set. if you disconnect the battery for 2 hours then attach ti again it might work. if this fails it might be the actuator in one of the doors. if it is faulty then it only semi closes the lock, but it then thinks that has to lock again. and locks the door. hope this helps. oscargilpin
2 bolts in each of the seats' floor rails... total of 8. Wire harness connectors may not be the same power seat control harness, seat heaters, etc. Research of connectors shows floor harness connectors are identical between 04 & 05. However, optional features like seat warmers in the wire harness of the 05 model may not exist in the other and vise versa.
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.
