Its not a common thread you'll find at the hardware store. Best thing to do is find someone with a dead servo unit and buy one of the caps from them. Then drill out the cap and glue in a funnel. Its not as easy as it sounds. Trying to hold a plastic threaded circle while you drill out the allen head area until its at least 3/8" diameter without screwing up the threads is interesting at best.

I'm not sure that $30 or whatever BBY charges is really that excessive.

They were charging $50 + shipping for a funnel, no thank you
Well then its time to source a cap, drive around town to get a funnel and JB weld and hope you don't screw up the cap drilling it out. IF successful within about 6 hours of wasted time and you'll have saved maybe $5.
