    Making this thread because there is a lot of misinformation on how to manually enter a 10th gen fuel door on this website. I know this because I was searching the site this morning at 2:00AM while in my car at a gas station in the middle of nowhere. The fuel door on my 2019 Civic Sport decided it wasn't going to open due to the flash freeze we had. After troubleshooting and researching, my conclusion was the actuator for the fuel door lock decided it didn't want to work.

    Here's how I got fuel in my car and got home.

    What you'll need:

    - A Plastic Card

    How to manually bypass the lock.

    Slide the card into the right side of the fuel door. Move card to this location.

    Slide card in an out till you hit the locking mechanism.

    After I got the door unlocked, I cycled the locking mechanism a few times and it starting working like normal again.

    or you can pull the green cable to release the fuel filler flap (from the trunk) ;)

    That doesn’t exist on a 2019 civic sport.
