Could be that the spring in the door is broken. When you pull the release handle doyou hear anything at the door like it is trying to open? If you don't hear anything then your cable might have come loose.

to start with you have to remove the filler neck at the tank opening you open the doorthere will be three small Torx head screws surrounding the perimeter of the opening for the fuel tank filler remove those 3 screws allowing a filler neck to wobble inside the fender then climb under the vehicle find the location of the filler tube connection from the hose to the tank just follow that hose down we're at clamps on 516 socket nice short extension and remove that hose clamp and remove the rubber line from the fuel tank once that's complete take a piece of smaller than 38 fuel line about 3 to 4 feet long preferrably and thread it through the filler neck being aware of the tank flap on the inside do not damage any obstruction of the tank assembly when trying to fish the host through then create a siphon into your collection cans until the tank is empty enough to achieve your goal pretty straightforward and common sense will help out more than my instruction

Trying to locate manual release tab 1998 Corvett fuel door


The fuel filler door release is the black button at the front of the center console storage compartment.

If your fuel filler door release won’t operate, there is a manual release tab. The tab is located against the upper trim in the rear compartment on the driver's side.

Nissan Altima fuel filler release latch broke ... need alternate


Never heard of anything like that.  But those latches are not as secure as most think, just take a flathead screwdriver, put a piece of cloth around it to protect your paint, and pry the door open, just when you think it's about to break something...pop, it opens just like that.  I've done this quite a few times, only broke one so far.  :-P
