My wife and I just purchased her a new-to-us 2010 RAV4 Limited on Saturday. When checking it out at the dealership we popped the gas door with the lever to make sure that worked, but didn't open it all the way. When we went to fuel the car the door will not open all the way. Thankfully it will open just barely enough to fuel, but not a hair more. The left side of the gas door is rubbing the body (the inner portion of the frame of the filler area). Is this a trend? If so, is there a known fix?

tl;dr 2010 RAV4 fuel door rubbing body and won't open all the way. Help!

Sounds like your gas door is bent causing it to rub. Is there anyway you can straighten the gas door ?

I'd be more inclined to think the gas door hinge was bent somehow - someone leaned on it, walked by it while they were filling and their jacket caught, whatever. if the doors were misaligned, I'd definitely think the car had some body work
