    Wood putty/filler worked well on my vinyl floor gashes. I bought a cute quick looking tube with a point-$3.00 or 4.00. Just smoothed it in , let dry overnight. Sand it down. Paint to match. Done. Good luck.

    I would think if you have a spare piece in under the cabinet or some incopicious place this would be an easy fix cut the piece the size and shape of the gash than work with a little whitting down and glue it would fit

    I used flexible wood filler on mine. I'd make sure it the flexible type.

    If you have a scrap of the vinyl flooring, cut a piece that is slightly bigger than the hole. Make sure the scrap pattern matches what is around the hole. Place the scrap on top of the hole, matching the pattern with the floor. Cut through the scrap and the flooring below. Pull up the cutout piece of the flooring from the floor and replace it with the new piece you cut out. It should match your pattern perfectly. Glue down edges and weight it down until the glue dries. This is what I did when my daughter dropped a hot pan on the floor and burned a hole in the new floor. I worked beautifully and you could not tell there was a patch.
