Use a backup wrench. If you still can't remove it (highly unlikely) you may have turn off gas at meter and replace valve. If you are reluctant to do this you may want to call a dealer. SAFETY FIRST

With all due respect I don't believe you should go any furhter with this project. A backup wrench is a second wrench used in the reverse position so in this case the valve doesn't move while taking off the cap. AND DON'T TURN OFF GAS METER
