I need some help or advice,I was in the petrol station and pulled the release tab to open the fuel tank but wouldn't open on a j11b had to get a piece of card to pull it open. I don't know if anyone else has had this issue.
I don't know if it's this spring causing the issue.
It doesn't seem to have enough pressure to pop open on its own like it used to??
Thanks

I see now, apologies as I didn't know that the petrol and diesel had different filler caps.
