Ok so I think the door won't open because I haven't re fueled the generator yet with the gas from the gas can. i just went through the door and right back to the safe house. But the gas can wasn't there. This is taken from the walkthrough on gamefaqs:
Exit the station. Around the back of the station is a door with an electronic keypad lock. Use the scanner's hacking function to hack the door and then go through. You'll find a couple of useful items out here. For one, you will find the gas can with fuel needed to restore power to the generator. And you'll also find a pump-action shotgun. Grab them both.
"My Missions" is telling me to take fuel from petrol station but when I get to the spot noted above in the walkthrough, there is no gas can. The pump action shotgun was there but that's it. Where's the petrol?
