    S210 fuel filler cap difficult to remove

    For quite a while now, i've had intermittent difficulty removing the fuel filer cap on my 210. I can always do it in the end but SWMBO sometimes has to go and find a strong man to help. The cap is basically very difficult to turn. Does anybody else experience this. Why does it happen?
