Anything Loooks Better than a Rusty Old Locking Gas Cap
#1
Absolutely needed the one with a security cable! Don't wanna pull away from a gas station and forget the $60 gas cap is sitting on top of the windshield or whatever and when you take off it rolls off the deck lid possibly denting/stratching it and now your out another $60.

LOL thats what happened to one of mine. When I was 16 pulled in for my 5 dollars worth. Put the cap on top of the pump, drove off, two minutes later turned around to go back to get it. Needless to say it was already gone.Angry

Yeah, gas caps....
To keep mine from getting stolen, I removed the top screw on the fuel pipe and inserted a metal pin fixed by a spring and drilled a small hole into the back of the gas cap.
That way the pin holds the gas cap in place and the cap can only be removed if the pin is pulled back from inside the trunk. Works like a charm.

Recently I've seen that somebody actually makes this stuff for sale. The spring and the fastening are different but the idea and the way the pin works are the same.

Doesn't help if you forget to put the cap back on though..! In that case I think cables or pop open cap can't be beaten!

Cool idea. Do you have to open the trunk first in order to open the gas cap? That's exactly what I am looking for...a stealthy locking gas cap.

I got a security cable cap for the coupe from Don, but the mach 1 has a flipper cap!
