    cap??????? Its an '89 model on a G plate. Thanks in advance

    Hmm, I take it you've only just got the car? Is there a lever to the side
    of the drivers seat, between the door and the sill? Try pulling it. If
    this is broken I remember either the 309 or 306 handbook having an
    illustration where you pulled the cable inside the boot to release the
    filler cap.

    Thanks mate. Found the leaver now (or the remains of it anyway!!!!). Off
    to get a new one tomorrow. Feel such a dick asking this question!!

    Should be damn easy to find in a scrapyard, I think... That's a 309 special
    feature :)

    It is the same as the 306. My wife went into a filling station, then
    realised she couldn't open the filler. Fortunately there was another 306
    owner there who told her.
    I had previously mentioned it but had forgotten to fit the ear plug first to
    stop the information going straight through.

    On my 406 the cable's OK, but there's a spring failed or something in
    the flap, so you have to prop the lever up with a key and push the flap
    by hand.
