The quick solution until you get it fixed is use the emergency fuel door release in the trunk through the circle access hole. You must pull the cable down not towards you. and you must use much more force than you would expect.

The actual problem can be any one of these...
cable, solenoid, actuator, switch, cable plugged into switch.

SOURCE: Gas tank door not opening

Hi there,
Have you looked in the trunk on the side that the gas tank is on? There may be a fuel release switch. Couple of other things to try is to unlock all your doors from the inside of your car and/ or try pushing in and out on the gas door over and over until, hopefully, it triggers the device. I hope that will help you. I will keep trying to find the answer. Let me know. Have a great night.~MWD

SOURCE: my 96 lincoln mark viii gas door will not release

There is A Spring or Spring type Mechanism At the Door that POPS the Door Open Once the Button has been Pushed . And when you Close the Door This Same SPRING ACTION Sorta Fights Against your Closing it. Well it Sounds to me as if this Spring Action is Not Working Properly,
Take a CLOSE Look at this and Be sure This is Working Properly, My References Do NOT Go into DETAIL on this so its Kinda a Common Sense Approach to it.

There is no inside release on the HHR. Simply press in on the rear of the gas fill door and it will "pop" open. Make sure you press it in again when you close it...

Gas Tank door stuck


Try having a second person pull on the door as you press the button, and also listen by the door to see if you can hear the release latch working. Also, open your trunk, and on the same side as your gas tank will be a little pull handle as an emergency release for your fuel door. It may be behind the trunk liner, but usualy they are easily accessable. and if you have any other problems, refer to the owner's manual to locate the release.

AUdi A6 gas tank button


There is no button to open the gas door from the inside of the car.  As long as the doors are unlocked, you should be able to push in the far right side of the gas door and the left side will pop open. I too spent hours looking for this non existent button..I went as far as to going back to the car dealership.

Gas tank door


I had one gas door solenoid replaced under warranty. Since then I have just shot a bit of WD40 onto the post comng from the solenoid that holds the door closed. Do this at each oil change and the problems should stop.

Hi

If my memory serves me right, the solenoid which pulls the cable to open the gas cap door is in the trunk on the side wall. Just gain access to it and then operate the plunger by hand. If you have one of those net storage bins fitted then you may need to remove that first as it could be behind it.

If you want to diagnose the problem, you need a volt meter to trace if, and where the voltage is missing.

Very best regards
