    It's the emergency release for the fuel flap, in case the central locking fails.

    Don't people read their owner's manual any more?!

    lol what would the Internet be for if we all read our manuals?

    And yes as said, it's the emergency release for the fuel cap. Not had to use it on our A4 but had to discover it's use on our A2 when the release button failed!
