You could also open the trunk, unscrew the clamp on the hose for the gas
filland pull the cap assembly out. Look inside, you should see two barbs
that snap in place when you push the cap on. Using a screw driver you can
push these barbs back in and pop the cap off. Of course this does not give
you a key to use for the cap but you can buy a regular original cap. The
70's are over, no need to lock it up...
P.S. If you don't care... A turn of a screw driver in the keyhole would do

If there is a key number on the lock, most large locksmiths can cut a new
key by that number. If not, they can cut a new key by fitting and filing.
$5 - $10 for the first option, $10-$25 for the second.

Need some help. Anyone have any suggestions on removing a
locking gas cap when you don't have the key? I have tried
all the keys in my keys jar. None worked.
Oh, yeah, the lbc content: the locked cap is on a mini.
