Hi, I thought I'd follow up. I broke the dowels off, put them in the retaining tips. I decided to leave the hinge all connected to the fuel door. I punched them in with a flat head and all was good, until the plastic dowel from the hinge that fits into the fuel door, broke from the force of the last tip.
Anyways, thanks for responses to the thread, it helped. It made me feel a bit silly, assuming the retaining tips were already large enough to retain the whole thing to the car. The second time will be a ten minute job.
