SOURCE: Petrol Fuel Cap door won't open
I had the same problem. Pressing the fuel door unlock button did not work, and I couldn't find any emergency release in the cargo/trunk area. Eventually, I clicked the Lock / Unlock button on the key fob a couple of times and tried again, this time holding the fuel door release button for 1-2 seconds, and it worked. I then sprayed some door lock lubricant into the fuel door lock in case there was something sticking in the mechanism. Don't know if this truly "fixed" the problem, but it's working now.

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.

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.
