Sometimes I have to replace my fuel cap opener after I use it to mix epoxy. Good excuse to have another popsicle here in the Florida heat ...

I usually use a stubby combination wrench like this one. The 3/8" wrench is one of my most used tools so it's always handy.

If I'm opening the tanks during preflight check, I might use my Philips head stubby screwdriver that I carry to open my oil access door. This works okay but the wrench is a natural lever and the bend at the end makes it perfect for quickly popping open the fuel cap.
