Great gas cap
wanted a locking gas cap because i do not like the idea of anyone being able to walk up to my car and opening the gas cap and then either adding or taking anything out of the gas tank. I chose this one because i liked the black finish. to me, this was worth the extra 20 bucks over the other locking gas cap AM sells.
This gas cap does exactly what i wanted it to do. key goes in fairly easy and turns without a problem. Once the gas cap is locked, it does not come off until unlocked. I gave this things a few good tugs in all ways to make sure it dosnt cheaply come off if your turn it enough like most cheap ones do.
-the paint on the black metal cover comes off and dings pretty easily, so be careful putting it down
-while playing around with the lock, i noticed that it is much easier to lock the gas cap BEFORE putting it back on. this makes it easier to lock the cap in place
-If you have an aftermarket fuel door, be careful. mine is aftermarket and just BARELY clears the fuel cap. Although if yours does not clear, you can always remove the black cap cover, leaving just the plastic fuel cap that has the actual lock on it.
Overall, this was a great purchase. If you are like me and are paranoid about having your fuel tank fully accessible, buy this. After looking for years for a good one of these, this is the first one that actually locks correctly and dosnt come off with just a few turns. its well built
