They're like £2.50 from Halfords and you'll need it again in the future!! Not Scottish are you?

A friend is dropping one off on Sat.I might put a bit of heat on it first.

I know you are borrowing the proper tool, but I have successfully removed the fill plug on a friend's Esprit with a Gator-Grip socket.

 

Can you buy them in the UK?https://www.emisupply.com/catalog/imagemagic.php?img=ztDJyNPalMK1r7eispau2sbKzZC%2B2dTR2sbc1J2uxuHU1ZWo4NDVnKq3q46gl5aflbC3j9jXzA%3D%3D&w=189&h=257&page=popup

Square socket fitted to a nice long torque wrench (30 cm) oughta do it? Or does it just start rounding off?

 

Whatever you do, use a long wrench - easier to distribute the forces that way - I've gotten stuff off that way that defied belief (Stock O2 sensor on Stock Cat for instance - crazy horrible noise as the threads worked lose but it worked without damaging either component!)
