Hello everyone! I just bought a 2008 RRS last night... Drove home from Indianapolis, stopped by a gas station when I got to Columbus and gas door will not open! I have been researching all day and cannot find out how to get the gas door open. I turned the truck off walked around pushed on the gas door and nothing... I am really upset that this is already giving me issues. Is there a way to open manually? Please any help is much appreciated! Thanks

There is a spring latch system that likes to fail at the worst of times. Using a nylon or plastic pry tool you can lever the fuel door open. With tension prying outward, press inwards then pry outward. If this doesn;t not release it pry outward a bit harder. Don't worry at the sound of plastic breaking as it's just the latch that you will have to replace anyway. If I remember correctly there was a service bulletin on this issue.
