SOURCE: Fuel door wont stay closed
there is a little metal tesion bar/bracket that keeps it in the open or closed position. If your fuel door itself is not bent or damaged then I would check this bar to see if it has been bent or out of place. I'm not sure if there is a replacement part; I just bent mine a little to get it to stay closed. Unfortunatly I left it open the other day when I went thru a car was after fueling and the door is bent now so I have another issue to deal with.
hope that helps

There should be a cable you can pull, around the area of the fuel flap. Open your hatch and check under any carpeting or interior coverings/compartments for something to pull.

My mechanic says this can be due to a brainshort on the part of the onboard computer; if the original driver's side doorlock switch goes on the fritz, it can confuse the computer and mess up the fuel door switch, trunk switch, and even the driver's door key switch (opening twice doesn't unlock the other car doors) - all of which happened on my car.

the bonnet cable should be a 2 piece system,trace the cable from the lock and you should find the join,undo and try again to lock manually with a screwdriver.possibly the cable could be siezed.

There probably is. My 99 Audi A4 has a release cable in the trunk. It's behind the trunk lining above the filler neck. Mine's red for easy identification - just pull it and it pops the gas door. While it's open, spray the lock with some white lithium grease or PB Blaster, and work it in. It may be that the latch is just sticky and those should clear up its operation.
