Default Fuel filler cap ?

Does anyone know who makes or supplies the fuel filler caps we all use. I need to try and order a key for one.

Looks nice but the existing cap is ok, I just really need to identify who supplied it originall so i can order a key.

A local locksmith tried a series of keys and blanks but found the wafers in the barrel were damaged.
I hadn't expected much joy from the manufacturers Newton Equipment but got an immediate response and 24 bought me a new barrel and pair of keys in the post. Good service and a lot cheaper than a new aero filler cap

Nice cap

The high position of my fuel tank due to the Rorty IRS, make the normal filling cap obsolete and I had to go low tech
Luckily the boot locks...
