Looks like this tool is used to open a recessed gas cap or water tank recessed in the deck. Not sure though, how big is it?

I don't have one but from memory they are about two inches.

This tool came with a car when you purchased it new.

Nope, good guess, looks a lot like a Ford radio removal tool. But nope, but you just gave me another question for the future.
