    Think you'll find this is/was a vent for the heating system for use of LHD vehicles and is just a blanking plate. Seem to recall in quite a few (Fiat Ducato) vans it had been left off and created a bit (well quite a lot) of a draft!

    I think if it like the Fiat it gives access to the fuel tank float

    Did it have a "Do NOT Remove This Cover" notice on it?
    I had a motorbike many years ago that had a cover under the seat that had such a label attached. So, of course, I took it off and there was a hand written label underneath with " We told you not to remove this cover, what did you expect to find?" That was it, it was just a cover over a void and someones idea of a bit of fun.
