Buried oil tank cap key

Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong forum. Since it's for a buried oil tank, I figured I'd get some responses here. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement key like this one. As stated, it's for a buried oil tank cap. This winter the oil company service tech used a wrench to open it and broke one. The other has a fracture. I'll look into getting that one welded. But I wanted to check ebay and see if they may have it. I tried checking at a few plumbing and heating places around by me, but no luck. Does anyone know the name of this type of key?

TIA

    Thanks Rob. I had seen that one, but I wasn't sure of the dimensions of the square head. If it'll fit the cap.

    Personally I would raise it and use a cap or Scully fill adapter instead. This is where the water in the tank usually originates

    I agree unless the snowplows will get it.

    buried tanks here are generally in the yard with grass over it. I don't see where he stated it was in his driveway. Those wrenches don't just "break" for no reason. Those caps always are worn and cross threaded, and the gaskets are long gone. I have all those wrenches, but got rid of all those fills. Try and find them under 3-5 feet of snow
