Locking Fuel Caps

Just picked up a pair of locking fuel caps from Auto Zone, they came as a key paired set, the only problem is plastic holder for caps does not fit. Found the name Stant on caps but no numbers, only matched these up by size of screwed fitting, taking one with me to store, at least I have a little piece of mind!

Don't worry about the cap holder not fitting, three months in the sun and it'll break anyway. They need to be tucked out of the UVs to last.

I put my locks on about a week after I took delivery. The two gas caps are just too tempting!!!

I put a locking cap on my auxillary diesel tank too because 90 gallons of fuel is a major bang in the pocket. But, it hit me the other day while I was sticking the tank, dang, all is needed is a Cresent wrench to remove the bung plug in the other end of the tank. They won't get my almost empty tank of gas though.

OK, here's a trade secret. Locking gas caps for almost all of the 2012-2014 Dutchman/Thor Trailers are for a 2003 Kia Sorento. Buy them anywhere. They fit perfectly and you will never have to worry about someone stealing your gas. They are also vented.

That is good they are vented as the GPI transfer pump needs 3LB or less vented cap to work correctly! If you installed caps that are not vented then the pump may only work in the cool mornings before the fuel expands.

Bringing this thread back up because I've got a sneaking suspicion someone may have siphoned some fuel from one of my tanks over the past week...

Anyway, as per post #5... the caps for a 2003 Kia Sorento are supposed to fit. Well before I headed out to the local parts hawk to buy a couple, I looked up the Stant part number for that car (#10595), and it's labeled as a "VACUUM ONLY" type cap.

I assume that means it's not a vented cap... which, as I understand things, we need for the generator to run. Correct?

Stant lists 3 different caps with the same measurements. #10595 VACUUM ONLY... #10596 NON-VENTED... and #10597 PRESSURE RELIEF.

(Page 263 on the following link:
http://stant.com/files/9314/0979/533...ck_Catalog.pdf )

So which one should I get?

You can vent the vacuum only cap by drilling a series of 1/4" holes in the end of the threaded section of the cap. This doesn't make holes in the visible fuel cap, but does allow the cap to vent.

I put Stant locking caps on mine and certainly wished I remembered the model numbers. I just went Iinto a local auto parts store and asked for a locking cap. Took it it home and it fit. Took it back with me the next day to get another with a matching key - no issues. Ran over 50 hours last weekend at the races.
