I have removed the trim from around the gas/trunk lever and found the gas cable doesn't have any tension on it. I can pull some of it out of the cable sheathing. The lever seems to be working as the trunk release still works properly.

Do you
have the same problem?

I can add a tip to this one whenever I replace a cable like this I will tightly tape the fuel release cable end of the new cable to the inside realease handle end of the old cable. Then go to the fuel door release end of the old cable and use the old cable to pull the new cable into place.
