Why would somebody take your gas cap? It probably fell off in the road.

lol....if it feels like its sealing good, i wouldnt worry about it...most gas caps are pretty much universal. If it looks like the cap you have is in bad shape, you might want to replace it tho...it can kill gas mileage, as hard as that is to believe.

Should be fine, just keep on your toes for poor mileage/strong fumes, then you know you are losing gas due to a weak seal.

No it won't be fine because you don't know whether you need a vented gas cap or not. If you **** up you might have your gas tank implode.

Step one, drive to Pep Boys.
Step two, look in little gas cap book.
Step three, buy appropriate gas cap.

No, you can get a locking one (which might be wise with this gas hype) for 17$ at autozone, and a normal one for under 8$. It's a gas cap, not a freaking fuel pump.

When they said I needed a new gas cap to pass smog on my van they replaced it for 8 bucks on the spot. I'm sure you can get it a few bucks cheaper from elsewhere.

well then, whoever wanted to sell you a gas cap for 30 bucks can go shove it. That gas cap better have some secksy ass bling on it with some bullet proof plating and plays music when you screw/unscrew it.

This is why you don't buy things from the dealer

Jeeze, we don't need a 2 page thread on a gas cap.

What year/make/model vehicle is it? I'll tell you what cap you need/can use.

The locking ones are crap.....

My brother had his original one stolen so he got this one. Two weeks later the lock part fell out. Now it takes him a few minutes everytime to get it off his car.

are you serious? its not like a cap is the only source for venting. my car is old so i just hav 12 inch hoses that vent into the atmosphere, but most if not all new cars route a line to the engine compartment, and some have a charcoal filter. Its not like if you dont have a vented cap the tank will pressurize and blow up or anything.
