On the 2005 -2009 Legacys, the gas cap has a tether on it. But the teher has nowhere to hang. I never thought about this until I saw a DIY thread on LGT.com I thought I would share it for my KC friends.
Buy a GM/Universal/Toyota "Universal Door Panel / Interior Trim Clip" Part number 458140. These are available at any O'Reilly's or other Auto Parts store. You then can put this ony the fuel door in an existing hole.
It doesn't seem like a big deal until you install it, and wonder why you dealt with that the whole time you drove your car.

Love it! I currently just hang mine over the metal tab that sticks out, but it falls off easily.

I use the tension on the tether to make the cap sit on the side of the door. :D

Funny... it has never occurred to me to do anything other than just let it hang ;)

So this works on Imprezas as well, I think I will change the title. Also, can someone show me a pic of this tension method that you speak of?

I no longer have my wrx but basically pull the tether under the metal flap and then up and over the gas door. it won't move. I promise.
