Default Looking for a power opening fuel door

Saw it on TV the other noght. Want to find out more about them, btu I can't find anything in the aftermarket at all. Has anyone come across a fuel door that is electronically opened? The one I saw rotated out of place (like the old logo'* trunk key locks) and had a second flap that followed right behind it (what would be a gas cap). Let me know if you have seen this or anything like this.

They are of interest to me also, but I have only seen them availible for 3 vehicles. Civics' , Stang'*, and sveral truck models. Given the spefic contour our bodies, I doubt one could be retrofitted.

it could be done let me get to the shop and i'll take a look at it, automation is something that really interests me lol...

i think removing the hinge and attaching a actuator on its own hinge then another to spin the door would be kind of cool

Do a google search for remote fuel door and you will come up with a couple sites that sell them for 'Stangs and trucks
