We own a 2005 Mercury Mariner (same car) and our gas door is opened by hand. there is a pin that extends on the inside of the door to keep it closed and maybe that piece is stuck. I would suggest using a pry bar of some sort. Use a towel or rag to protect the finish and then just pry the door open. You may end up having to replace the locking pin, or it just may need a good spray of some lubricating oil.

How to pump gas in fuel tank


woow just put the nozzle in the neck, now if its hard to go in you may have a problem with the ventilation valve or a bend in the hose and make sure the neck is clear, and check to see if it has a roll over valve sometime they stuck close and will cause a back up

Used the wrong gas


Open the gas fill door, remove the gas cap and smell the gas fill tube area. If it has a kerosene like smell then you may have filled it with diesel fuel. If so select your favorite garage to drain the tank and flush the fuel system to remove the diesel.
This vehicle should run on any type of gasoline so I suspect the fluid you put in was not gasoline.

you have a vapor vent tube problem. When fuel goes in, the iar must come out. The filler pipe has a vent pipe inside it. Try putting the nozzle in upside down & see what happens. Try putting the nozzle all the way in & see what happens? Try putting the nozzle in just a little way & see what happens.
Otherwise, you may need a new filler pipe.

Your probably getting vapor lock. Try pulling the nozzle out just a tiny bit....like maybe 1/4 inch and see if that helps.
