I have exactly that: the lock on my fuel door broke, so I replaced it. The replacement came with a new key, different than my ignition key. Might be an option for you, and not too expensive. The part number was 37220-439-007 and I believe it was around $30 if I recall.

I have not made one for a 1500 but for 1100s and 1800s the key goes into the ignition farther than it does in the fuel door. Get a radio knob with a set screw, cut a key off so it sticks up out of the lock enough to go up in the knob and put the radio knob on the key, it won't work the ignition or the trunk lock because it's too short.

I have done just this. The key blade extends from the knob exactly one inch. I epoxied the blade to the knob instead of using a set screw. I leave the key/knob in the lock permanently.
