is there a key barrel in it? Perhaps its locked?

If not twist harder Counter Clock Wise direction.

You need to put the key in, hold the cap, turn the key to unlock, then turn the cap anti-clock wise to open!

This is a pain, I manage to open it by luck, the first time and had to refer to the manual after spending 10 frustrating minutes at the pumps.

Hold the cap steady, insert the key and turn the key anti-clockwise whilst holding the cap, when the key stops after 180 degrees, then turn the cap and key anti clockwise as one.

Refit by placing the cap on, turning clockwise until it clicks, hold the cap again and now turn the key clockwise and remove.
