Default Fuel Door Hinge

My OE hinge died, so I bought an aftermarket replacement that IPD carries. I got it on the fuel door and go fit the hinge into the body holes, but the tolerances between the 4 plastic dowels and the body holes are laughably bad. The tension on the hinge spring is far far greater than what the dowels can resist. All I need to do is tap my finger gently on the fuel door and it will come tumbling off the car... Anyways, anyone have a better solution so my fuel cap is not so naked to potential vandalism?
