Lol, go to the gym!!!!

I would suggest using a pair of pliers, and then buying a new gas cap. Or areyou talking about the lid? Like part of the body of the car? Cuz if you mean that, there is a button on the door you push and it pops open.

Lol trust me I have more muscle then people my age do haha, and no I'm talking about the cap, not the gas tank door that opens perfectly, I've put gas in my car millions of times, the button on the door works fine and the gas tank door opens fine too it's the cap that's the problem

I'm guessing the last person to fill 'er up may have fuk'd up the threads on the cap. Possibly while drunk. (the threads on the cap cant get more coarse and easier to screw)

Thats just my guess. No judgement.
