Common fault. The is thread on here somewhere to stop it happening again if you do a search.

To get mine open I forced it open with a credit card so not to damage the paint. Then do the mod on the flap and lubricant the actuator with WD40 so it doesn't get stuck again.

This happened on my 2015 when the battery started to die. Turn ignition on (foot off brake), wait a bit, then turn ignition back off. Is the filler flap still stuck? If so, check battery.

Correction:

If the fuel flap works after this, check the battery.
