Gas filler door loose

The gas filler door on my ‘06 OR won’t stay shut. It opens up halfway when I’m driving around. Not a major deal but it’s kind of annoying. How can it be fixed?

I did it to mine. The little spring popped off my fuel door like 3 days after I bought it. I found that picture somewhere and did it to mine. It’s lasted since 2019 with no issues.

OK, so the zip tie solution didn't last -- which is too bad, because I'm a sucker for any fix that involves zip ties and/or duct tape. So I went with the magnet fix. Four round magnets from Menard's and some good ol' JB Weld and Shizuka's gas filler door shuts tighter than a bank vault. Thanks again for the help!
