New tank key for my 2007 TE610

When I called my local dealer, they said there was no part # for the key by itself (I think I'd have to buy a whole new cap with keys.)

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement blank for my key? I still have one tank key I can use to make a copy, but I'm always worried about losing it.

I think buried in here is how to alter the lock cylinder so any flat blank (read screwdriver) will open it if you aren't worried about actually locking the cap.

I would actually like to lock it up though.

Did you consider just going to your local place that copies keys and check if they got a blank that'll do?


After all most manufacturers have their tank caps made by other companies, such as ZADI.
Those blanks are usually commonly available.

I actually did take it to my nearest locksmith, but he wasn't able to place it. It was summer then though and I didn't want to leave my key with him to research further, but I guess I could do that now...just thought someone might have a source for these. I'll check on the tank cap, maybe it has a manufacturer on it.

Thanks!
