Gas Cap key lock.

I was having opening my gas cap. Finally got it off by turning it as far as possible and then prying it off. Was filled with aluminum oxide.

Any one know any good replacements for the gas cap? Maybe even keyless?

I have looked around on google and haven't had much success.

But to any one that has same problem. Take the entire assembly apart and clean as good as possible. Where the lock bar slides back and forth I put some graphite to it and some sand paper to everything else to get rid of the white currosion.

Lock works better than before but still would like to replace it.
