To unstick a stuck gas cap .
With the cap in unlocked positiion take a piece of 1 × 2 wood and insert one end of it between one of the cogs preferably at the 12 o'clock position on the gas cap . Then take a small hammer and tap rather firmly in a direction towards the back of the cap and in a counter clock wise direction with vigorous hammer blows.
It may take several hammer blows but mine was very corroded and eventually freed up

Sucks that this happened, those gas caps are incredibly overpriced when people resell it OEM. Looks like it came out in one piece but it sure would scare me to take a hammer and a piece of wood to it. Hopefully nothing was damaged in the process!
