The fuel door lock is actuated with the general door locks.
The actuator could be malfuctioning. You can ckeck this out by leaving the fuel door wide open then go to the passenger door and lock/unlock it with your key. You should be able to see the metal stem in the fuel door go in and out as you lock and unlock the passenger door. If this isn't happening then the actuator is not working. Check wiring connections to it from inside the trunk.

WTF....dude...there is no way that door locks. Its just a flap on a spring hinge...there is no actuator or anything else there. ...
on the E39 cars and E46 cars the flap locks but never seen that on a E36 car.
you gotta post a picture of that...maybe the previous owner modded your feul door to lock.
