Had this happen with my 06 too. As Vern said, clean both sides of the cap and filler neck. My mechanic also lubed that spot with something and I've never had a problem again. It's been 4 years.

It's essentially glued on by the heat. I would think twisting it is the best method of breaking the seal. You could also try getting it hot before hand by running the car or using a hair dryer.

Piece of cake with the right tools. T60 it is.

I did see the above video, but they didn't use the torx bit for the AC belt tensioner. Just a slight difference in design.
