    got it....I took the fuel tank fill area apart, inspected the plunger and spring...it seems fine to me. Lubed up, clean, etc.... Here...



    But my fuel door tab is stuck on the open position, when I push down it springs back up all mushy like...



    So I took the sear out and lifted up the carpet a lil and inspected the linkage.....It was very dirty. It felt scratchy. I lubed er up good....and used a pair of needlenose to force the wire back into the tube. I kept on a lubin and pushing and pulling the gas door latch untill it felt like it was getting cleaner and smoother to operate.

    This was where I lubed :P

    Works now

    Cheers
