Has anyone tracked down a replacement gasket for the gas filler cap?  Do I need to make one?

I was parked my BT7 just outside of the entrance gate and someone rob me of my nice new chrome plated one. I went to NAPA also and bought another one. I hope that ASSHOLE reads this post!

During my drive to Open Roads in Lake Tahoe in 2002, I filled my tank and drove away, not discovering until I stopped later that the noise I heard like something falling off the car was the petrol cap.  I had laid it on the top cover, as was my habit during fueling.  After a futile search for it over the last 20 miles, I came across a NAPA store in the country.  Well, there is no chance they will have a Healey gas cap, but I went in to check anyway.  The clerk simply asked “locking or non-locking?” and produced one exactly like the one I lost.  I don’t know if it was BMC factory original, but if not it was close enough, and certainly better than duct tape.
The moral of the story:  since then I have made it a firm practice to put the cap in a pocket during fueling, and I have not lost another one.

Hi all,  I foolishly drove off from the gas station and left my original filler cap on the rear seat back.  It fell of on the road and was run over.  Much misery ensued.
I could buy a new replacement but they are not quite the same as the originals, so does anyone out there have a used original filler cap they will part with?  I have a BT7, but I believe the same cap was fitted to all the 6 cyl cars, and perhaps the 100s as well, but I am not sure of that.
If you have something, please contact me off-list.
With thanks, Mirek
