No help for you, but welcome to fordtough.ca, great first post Pam, sorry to hear you're having troubles with your fuel door.
Did you join to find some help, or just to throw out "cheap plastic hinge", "$500 repair", "inferior component" and a sarcastic "Built Ford Tough? Yikes! "
Not trying to be an asshole, but join an enthusiast forum and start throwing out terms like that makes you come across like a troll.
What year is your truck ? Are you the first owner ? What sort of abuse has been heaped on the fuel door ? Who quoted the $500 repair ? Body shop ? Ford dealer? Local mechanic ? Is that new parts, paint, labour and taxes all in ?
More info is always better to get a better answer.
In answer to your original question, I've owned six F150's and never had any problems like you've described.
