    I haven't been able to track one down, either a complete assembly or just the door with the correct hole for the cylinder. Any suggestions on where to look? Thanks!

    You could make one. If you are creative and bold enough.

    I was concerned with the Tacoma not having a locking fuel door. Now that I do have the truck though, it’s not a huge concern. Maybe if you think someone might try to put some foreign substance in your vehicle, but in terms of fuel security, if a thief wants your fuel, they are better off having access via the cap then straight drilling a hole.

    You want a Stant 10504 gas cap. You can find them at most O'Reilly's/NAPA/Pep Boys locations. They work on both the 2nd and 3rd gen without issue - some of the knockoffs will throw a warning light because of EVAP leaks.

    There's no good way to lock the fuel door on a third gen. Just go with the locking cap.

    If you live in Montana, a locking gas cap sounds like a terrible idea. -25 degrees and fumbling to unlock a frozen gas cap.

    Plus can’t they be ripped off easily?

    I guess it’s cheap security, but it really ain’t fooling much.

    Yep, I had the locking fuel door on my T100 freeze up when low on gas and well freezing. The fuel door got pryed open and later removed the lock altogether.
