I discussed this modification to the fuel filler door today with someone, I forgot your name, but here are pictures illustrating the modification.

Bascially, the fuel filler door barely pops open when you press the button to unlock the filler door. By changing the tension on the 2 springs, the door can pop open much further. No more need to dig your fingers under the door to open it!

I have an after pic but it's not up yet. It does open at least a full inch-1.5" wide. I will add the pic soon, thanks for your patience.

My door barely opens....good idea. I wish VW had just had some sort of door popper solenoid to make it go full open by itself.

There is more than enough room in there to add an additional solenoid to assist the door opening but it would require extra wiring and modification beyond a free mod.
