Locking gas door

I realized tonite that my gas door does not lock when I lock up my GC. And as there is no gas cap you can’t add a locking cap. Any ideas? Anybody else’s gas door lock?
My 2021 Grand Cherokee L Summit Reserve does NOT have a fuel filler door release button nor does it lock at any time.
Add that, with a "Brake Hold" feature to a list of improvements I'd like to see.

I don't know why you answer if you can't bother to offer a full sentence. What appears to be the complete answer to the locking fuel door question for 2022 and later models is that:
It is not offered on the ICE versions.
It is provided, apparently as required due to the pressurization needed for the PHEV engine, in the 4xe.
Several interior views of the left side of the dash of a 4xe have shown that, and the useful link to the 4xe manual supplement that you provided gives even more detail.
There's no relevance to what people have seen on pre 2022 models, as the platform is entirely different.

i think the 4xe's have a locking fuel door. At least the images of the hybrid mode buttons near the light switches show a fuel door open button.
I'd assume it is a similar pressurized system to the wrangler 4xe's.
Great idea put the locking door on the model that doesn’t require the gas

Is Brake Hold an option? I have it on my 2021 Grand Cherokee L Summit (Not Reserve)
