We had freezing rain overnight. I went to fill up my gas tank in the morning and the gas tank door unlocked, but was frozen and would not open. I didn't wont to pry it open, so I waited till later in the day. Any ideas if this happens in the future?

I know on my 05 when I bought it with 180k the fuel door would only pop out a little after pulling the release so in freezing rain/snow it wouldn't open so I checked it out and found it has a little tab of metal that bends and makes it spring outward so i bent that tab about an inch and the door pops open strong now ,some spray wax coating inside the gas door might help keep the ice from sticking too
