Late Lotus Elans used a locking cap similar to the Sunbeam ones. Have not fitted one so maybe a different filler tube is needed too?

If the Elan gas cap is not a direct fit, you might be able to transfer the lock mechanism to a standard Alpine cap. It would be an expensive way to get that lock hardware, though.

Curious - are you afraid of folks stealing your gas or putting bad stuff into your tank?
