I have a 2011 300 and the silver flap in my gas door is "locked".  The fuel nozzle will not

The little spring loaded,tab is stuck,the only way to make it move is,take a screw driver and hammer,and tap lightly inward on it,should break it loose.

Had the same issue with my 2013 300-C. I was at th gas station but i couldnt refuel because the fuel nozzel wouldnt go in. If you look closely, there are two buttons located on each side inside the fuel inlet. The gas nozzel is suppose to push against both buttons and the metal "flap" unlocks

Yes, had the same issue trying to fill with a gas can. Those little tabs are the trick. Push one side in with a screw driver, the other side in with the gas can. Poof, magic, it opened.
