Default Fuel cap opener

I have been searching for someone who makes a fuel cap opener. I saw one advertised a while ago, with engraving for N numbers, but the link seems to be lost in the maze of favorites.

Anybody have any leads?

Thanks

A good guy to deal with. He helped me out when the post office lost the first set of caps he engraved for me.

EPM makes one also (not engraved). Plastic so it doesn't scratch the metal.

Default Even better

A new honda key. In fact, I bet a honda dealer would give you one from their miscut blanks. It has no exposed teeth to scratch metal and perfectly fits the Van's fuel cap.

Free and weighs nothing (assuming you drive a Honda )
