Since you have an 09, take it to the dealership for the work. It should be covered under the factory warranty.

I don’t what the 09 filler looks like but the cable just release the filler door and it has to have something to spring it open.

I think it's just a little spring-tab right at the door hinge. You should be able to bend it a bit to give more tension, but it should be covered by warranty.

I finally got fed up, and fixed mine.

I pulled lever assembly out and saw that the cable has a position adjustment.
It was just a matter of pulling the cable out and putting it back on a different slot. You have 3 positions to choose from. I moved it from the middle one to the 3rd counting from the front. This gives you about 3 more millimeters of cable throw.

Once you know what to look for, this job takes about 5 minutes.
