    Bought this after fuel prices went sky high to deter theft. Had another one before, but it caused the Malfunction indicator Lamp (MIL) aka check engine light to come on. No problems with this one as of yet and hope not to have any. I recommend these especially if you cannot secure your car in a garage to prevent fuel theft.

    A locking gas cap gives me the assurance that the gas I purchase will remain in my car. :) The gas cap comes with (2) keys which are perfect for the spare key ring.

                      Web site quotes you one price but when you get to the store it is NOT that price BUT the original price. When you ask the counter person why they will tell you " I have no clue as to why"

                      • Q:

                        Do you offer a locking gas cap that is vented? Is it true that a vented cap will help to prevent fuel evaporation?

                          A:

                          Hi Kelly, my answer to your question on the Stant Plastic Locking Gas Cap -part# 10506 is that the vented gas cap is designed to vent small amounts of air into the car gas tank line. The vented gas cap has a one-way release valve that is pressure-activated. When the pressure reaches a certain point (defined by so many pounds per square inch) the valve opens by a very small amount, relieving some of the pressure. In this case, the pressure is formed on the outside of the tank, due to the vacuum formed from the displacement of fuel on the inside. After the pressure inside the line equalizes, the pressure valve closes. The valve is set to balance the pressure with the surrounding atmosphere. Air is allowed in, but no fumes are allowed out of the gas cap, because of environmental concerns. In order to locate the exact vented gas cap, please provide the year, make, model and engine size of the vehicle.

                          Instructions to remove a locking gas cap: 1. Unlock the fuel-fill access door. Some cars with electric door lock systems will secure the access door over the gas cap whenever the car is locked. Simply unlock a door on the car to open the fuel door on such models. Other makes have a lever under the dashboard or driver's seat that unlocks the fuel door. 2. Unlock the gas cap. Slip the key into the slot on the center of the cap with the teeth toward the outer circle. 3. Turn the key clockwise. The lock cylinder gives and allows the key to move. 4. Turn the gas cap counterclockwise. Unscrew the cap until it's completely off the threads. 5. Replace the cap and tighten it. Slip the key into the slot and hold the cap by the still with one hand while turning the key counterclockwise. Remove the key and check the lock by trying to open the cap. For further assistance please feel free to call 1-877-238-2623 and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
