I Really messed up

My stupidty, I usually know that when filling up, once the the handle snaps to shut the fuel flow, I shouldn't try to add a little more because that will always overflow on the ground...........but since I'm stubborn, saying 'Maybe this time will be different' $%%^&&$#@#((*%*^&&(#(%$. Of course it overflows....Now this morning I find this on the ground. I think the gas dissolved some kind of glue.
What is the best way to glue this baby back reliably. (not super glue) I don't want to find it missing 2 months down the road.
Thanks in advanced.

Is there any indication of how it was originally held in place from the factory?

If not I would go to an autoparts store in the adhesive isle and look for an automotive adhesive that is made to bond to plastic and paint.

What about plastic model glue? Looks like the same type of plastic.

The only issue I see with that is how it would hold up to extreme hot or cold temperatures over time.

The plastic model glue would melt them together. I think it would hold up.

Another issue with "topping off" your fuel is the charcoal canister. It's intended to collect the fumes from the gas tank and route them to the intake for burning off. When you top off, you over fill, and the fuel sloshes up the tube and into this canister overflow tube, and over time distroys the charcoal canister. It will set a code, and that canister is almost a hundred bucks to replace.

I used to do this years ago, until my F-150 had this failure due to over filling.

Hindsight's 20/20 I guess, but don't top off your fuel. Just think, when you squeeze that little extra bit in there how much are you getting in there? Pretty much nothing when compared to the 13 or so gallons you just dumped in!
