Ok so I was all giddy getting 43.7 MPG with 50 miles left on trip when I went to fill up. I pulled the fuel door and it felt kind of loose. I looked back and it didn't open. I spent 2-3 minutes pushing the door side to side and top and bottom and tried again finally getting it to open. Everything looked ok so I filled up and closed it. Sure enough it doesn't open again no matter what I do. At least I was smart enough to fill up but believe it when I say I'm scheduling a service appointment ASAP with the dealer. I googled this and saw quite a few various Mazdas that this happened to just wanted to see if anyone else experienced this and what did they do. For the record this is my 4th tank on the car period I just bought it 2 weeks ago.

Sounds like something the dealer should fix. I wouldn't even waste time trying to fix it as it's probably the cable or something

It was cable came loose or broke in the back. I honestly suspect the tint installer did it but who cares it's fixed now. Dealer had to order a new part.

if you need to save someone from a house that's burning down that would be a great thing to have, no need to setup a ladder :D
