    hi and welcome.
    my other half debbie used to work at a petrol station and she has said they used to keep all the fuel caps that were left on the pumps in a big tub so you could try the old " i filled up with fuel the other day and must have left my cap on the pump has anyone handed it in??? " routine you may get lucky as they used to just give you the tub to rummage through.
    otherwise try a couple of breakers yards.

    i presume that when you say old merc you mean the square 308 type in which case i may have one at work. i will have to check for you.
