You should plastidip the end of the spring. It will keep you from having to use electrical tape. Or I do believe they make coated springs.

That's a great ideas. I hadn't thought of that. Thanks.

The switch is not provided but you should be able to find it on eBay for around $12-18ish. It's from older 2k VW's.

If that fuse powers the 12V cig outlets - and the 12V cig outlets are only on when IGN is on, how come its a constant 12V (I went out and tested with my meter and sure enough it is constant 12V)...

I could be wrong but if it's tied to the ignition then I believe the ignition switch would control the power. Much like a light switch it always has power but prevents power from reaching the light unless it's on.

I'm not sure if that's a question or not. It sounds like you figured it out. I don't even know what that fuse is for. I just probed until I found a hot fuse without the key and stuck the fuse tap in it. I wanted constant so if I got out to fill up and forgot to pop the door i could just reach in and do it without putting the key back in the ignition.

Yes. Fuse tap to your button. Then button to the relay/actuator.

Put some heat shrink tubing on the last coil of that spring. Paint would wear off.

Where did you find the fuel button ? I've looked for one of those. Can't seem to find one like that.

Have you checked eBay? If nothing there, you can always check out a auto junkyard, and there's also different Toyota parts websites .
