If you look inside the boot area on the side where the fuel cap area is - you will see a pull ring arrangement that you can pull to open the fuel flap... this is an emergency release..

You may have to peel back the material up the side of the car "wall" to reveal the mechanism depending on exact model...

That will allow you to use the fuel flap - put fuel in etc until such a time as you can get the component sorted out... it usually means a new motor for the fuel flap ... but you can sort that out then..
