Fuel Filler Neck Seal installation?

Is the seal really tricky to install? I cannot figure out how to get it all the way around the neck. Can get the bottom in, then the top won't go, etc. Has anyone had trouble with this?

General tips for installing seals like this, Heat in boiling water to make more flexible, spray with armour-all to make slippery, and use a paint can opener - the cheap ones with the hook on the end to massage things, could also use small screwdriver but be careful not to scratch things.
