Is anyone developing one?

This would be very nice to have when parking my car in a lot...
I don't know about a locking gas cap, but someone could drill a hole in the fuel door cover and attach a lock.

Of course remove the door cover before atempting to drill the hole :), and make sure the latch will latch so it has to be measured and all that stuff, maybe work with a mockup 1st to ensure the right placement etc.

Maybe someone will make an after market fuel cover with the lock already installed like the ones sold for the F150 and the H2. Actually the F150 one, might be the same dimensions.

I've been doing searches all over but I can't find dimensions.

Or we can find out who makes the fuel door cover and ask if they would offer a lockable version...

Edit: it would be ideal if it had also a stop inside so you know when it's locked.

I smell Group Buy!!!!!!

I guess I'll add some images for illustration:

As reference here are links to pictures of the elise's fuel door:

F150 and others:

I think the closer is the 2004 F-150 mount but I don't have access to one to measure it, part number 6052P, they don't have a 6052PL :(
