I find that pushing more towards the middle of the fuel filler door helps, it must be something in the way it flexes. Bottom line is on a car this expensive it just shouldn't happen.

No painting necessary, flap stays You┤re old one, problem is with filler flap module, basically all earlier Panameras have it.
It┤s not ok if you have to use force.
It┤s a little bit less then 1h work to change it.

My July delivery Panamera hybrid with the same issues had whatever parts replaced under warranty however the problem still persisted..My month old Panamera has had no issues so far...fingers crossed..!.I still believe its a common factory fault on early Panameras where the actual fuel flap is misaligned ie the flap is set too far towards the rear so when the release catch is pressed the flap just catches on the edge..I found this out when i was stranded and i used my credit card to prise it open...This worked every time..

Maybe You┤re panamera didn┤t get the newer modifyd module? Spare part changes part no.
Visually there is no difference with two parts, but some dimensions etc is defenitly different on new module.
Anyway they have to fix it under warranty.

had same issue on my 2017 Panamera 4...also the outer body colour flap didn't seem to sit flush as it should with rear haunch. OPC replaced the whole plastic section of the fuel filler flap basically everything that sits beneath the body coloured cover. now it is not only a LOT easier and more consistent to open but it also sits flush rest of that panel as it should.
