One of the most irrational and cheap things Volvo engineers did on those cars. A car that cost even more than a 240 got a plastic fuel filler door. I would follow the advice above and use some small bolts if you can. Would also suggest you always get out and open the fuel door yourself. Otherwise within the next week or so after installing. Some gas jockey will break it again for you.
