I thought it was just the fuel door that was not opening, not the car unlocking. Have I misunderstood this?
No, I read it the same way as you because I had an issue with my fuel door as well. The car unlocks, so we can get to the screwdriver if needed...lol

With the engine on and all doors locked, manually unlock the door by pushing the unlock button on the door handle before you shut off the engine. Shut off the engine, try to open the fuel door. It should work.

I read on a GV80 facebook page a few days ago that a dealer told someone with an issue, that there is a little opening that you can remove the cover from on the left side of the trunk to expose a fuse panel. They said to unplug the red wire and that should allow you to open the fuel door.. My car doesn't have this issue so I have no clue whether it works or not but I did try locking the car and see if it would open when locked and it did not. Then when I plugged the red cable back in, I heard the motors in the hatch lock running so I don't think that had anything to do with the fuel door but it is just for the hatch.
I thought I would pass this along just incase it will work is you have this issue. But I have a screwdriver at the ready.😁

Here is another thing to do if you have this problem and can get it open. A dealer put a clip on someones plunger to stop it from locking. To be quite honest, if the door will still open and close, this might be the way to go as I couldn't care less if my door locks. If someone is going to steal my gas, the can just pop open the door with any tool at hand so let them have it without any damage to my car.
