Turn the lock fully anticlockwise and then put the cap in fully seated.
Turn the whole assembly clockwise using the key.
The problem appears to be the seating of the key release mechanism that allows the key to turn and be released from the cap. Some times it seats down correctly and at others it just refuses to do so. Wobbling the cap as it seats makes it better but does not cure it
Had the same problem myself. You're spot in if you look underneath the filler cap you'll find the little toggle (the key release mechanism) which prevents the cap from rotating if not pushed home enough. I now make sure that toggle is at the top when putting the cap in place then push the cap upwards a touch, the cap shuts easily then.

I find this happens on mine but only one way, so if you lift cap off neck, rotate cap 180deg, put back into neck & key turns ok.
Edit, just read Bigian's post a bit more carefully so yes that must be it, needs the 'bit' at the top. I never really looked though. If it don't go in one way I try it the other way & it does.
