I went to fill up the Tacoma’s gas tank at a Texas truck stop and my locking gas cap was missing. Darn! Nearly 200 miles back in Arkansas I filled up and people were waiting for me to move and I placed the cap on the pump and drove away.
Background- the Tacoma does not have a locking gas door. I replaced the gas cap years ago to prevent tampering. There was no tether on the original cap and no holder on the door, so replacement cap has always been loose.
I guess I was lucky that my check engine light haven’t come on. The truck stop did not have any caps and I get on the road before stores open.
I got it! I took a sandwich bag and elastic and sealed the gas fill pipe.
When I got to Tucson, AZ I went to AutoZone and bought a new locking cap.
Now I’m determined to make a cap tether/holder/hook to not require setting the cap in the pump.
