The filler flap is plastic, as is the pin on the locking solenoid. If the thing has genuinely jammed, then it's not too tricky to get something behind the flap and just pry it open without damaging the paint.

I had to do this at a petrol station once when I was hundreds of miles from home and with a deadline to meet - the car was onto reserve, and the petrol flap lock decided to stick. At that point, I just needed to get moving again, so I decided to resort to brute force and get a replacement flap if I damaged it. I was surprised how easy it was to get the thing open without causing any damage.
