stuck petrol cap help urgently!!

ok well ive got about a 1/4 of a tank left of petrol, and when i went to fill my mk3 fiesta up i couldnt remove the petrol cap
the key goes in turns 1/4 to the right and thats when it normally comes out but when i try to pull it out it pulls out about 5mm at the most, - like its got some serious suction behind it,

any ideas,

or how do i just get the thing out so i can replace it witha new one,.

Can you turn the cap with the key still inserted?

Re: stuck petrol cap help urgently!!

have you tried spraying some lube ( silicon spray, wd40, crc ,etc ) in the key hole.
maybe the key/lock is jamming and not releasing the catch properly.
