I have the same problem, I have removed the handle and pulled the carpet away from the door guard and pull the cable with my hand. It does not take alot of pressure to release the handle. I am going to tie a piece of small rope (shoe lace thick) to the cable.

Yes, I'm sure the owner's manual shows how to do this. Usually one of the panels in the trunk. Take them off to check, but I would consult the manual first.

read the manual. There should be a cable in the trunk you pull as a manual release. If not pull the trunk lining fabric back away from the fuel fill area. You should see how to manually open the gas filler door

In virtually all cars there is an emergency release mechanism located inside of the trunk. It's either a pull cord, or a means of twisting the release cable to remove the plunger from inside the fuel tank door. Look inside your trunk, pull back the liner if necessary, or feel around where the cable leads to the fuel tank door.
Once you diagnose the problem you will then know whether or not you will need to replace the release cable.

More than likely the metal spring on the inside of the gas door is broken where the plastic attaches. Have someone hold the fuel door lever in the release position while you gently use a flat head screw drive to open the door. The part should cost you less than $10 at Toyota.
