Ì can't get the gas cap off, any ideas
One or two things. Does the cap lock with a key? If so, the cap is either still locked or is remaining in the locked position. Get it to a lock specialist as soon as possible. Another possibility is that the lip on the tank filler neck is damaged, and the solution is to force the cap off. If nothing else works, you can remove the filler neck from the tank by undoing the flexible hose that holds the neck to the tank, the bracket/s that holds the neck to the body of the car - this must be done usually from the underside of the car, and there should also be screws that hold the filler neck to the body inside the filler well. It is a finicky job, but if you can do this, you can take the neck complete with cap to someone who can help, or get a new neck from the dealer or a breaker yard and fit a new cap.
