Fuel flap not releasing

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

My 2018 QQ's petrol flap and spring, your spring looks totally different?

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