Maybe try using a hose clamp to help clamp it down and hold it in place so it doesn't happen again.

You can get the proper clips from any automotive store or use small zip ties (I have with success in a pinch), but there's one question nagging me about the whole thing: how much fuel was missing? Any chance someone removed it to syphon off fuel? I know it'd be a bugger sucking it through the fuel line but I've seen gas thieves try dumber things.. LR
