Fuel Flap!!!!!!

Pulled into a garage to give my baby a drink, and lo and behold the fuel flap came off in my hand!!!
it looks like little plastic lugs have broken, can this be repaired or am i looking at a new fuel flap? how can it be replaced?
am paranoid i will lose it whilst driving now

The same happened to me on an Audi, the plastic hinge broke on that too. After that i've always greased every flap i've had since.

All that holds the outer cover is two push in pins in the hinge, I lost one and used a similar sized self tapping screw and pushed that in..job fixed.
