All right, this is such a simple thing, it barely counts as a mod, but I couldn't find a better place to put it. I have no association with this company, and I'm sure this isn't the only solution out there, but dang, look at that:

It's this $6.50 gas cap holder off eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/283777573538. That's the only place I could find it. The packaging says "Exclusively manufactured by Alpine Diversified, Kalispell Montana for Panoramic Products, P.O. Box 1064 Kalispell, MT 59901. None of that turns up any hits on Google; my guess is that these companies are long gone, and this eBay seller is liquidating old stock.

It would be about the easiest thing in the world for anybody with a 3D printer to make, just a hollow rectangle with a semicircle cut out of it. It works very well though, and the door still closes no problem. Only thing that remains to be seen is how long the mounting adhesive holds up in the presence of fuel vapors. For the price, I'm willing to take my chances, and I'm grateful to finally have somewhere to put the gas cap!
