    S1 Alpine Fuel Tank through trunk grommet

    I am looking for the rubber grommet that protects the fuel tank filler hose that passes through the trunk. It is oval, and not the round grommet that is in the side of the car. Who sells this? I can't find at Sunbeam Specialties or Victoria British. Thanks!
