Its hard to buy a new strap retaining fuel cap to fuel flap ?
Try joining old strap with strong glue and right size heat shrink electrical connector.
Simples ?

New filler cap and strappy thing come together, at less than a tenner IIRC.
Repairing the strap might not be a long term fix as the plastic may just be at the age where it's deteriorating so could happen again.

I thought 20 plus was the figure for a BMW but otherwise agree with you. It worked for me even if a bid OTT in the scheme of things.
