I test drove a 3500 Laramie yesterday the truck had a green plug as you describe, I wonder if any company is going to make a locking cap for it.

I saw those. I would like a locking cap. They don't bother much stuff around here, but locks only keep people honest. If it's locked and they want it it's gone.
Thanks.

I noticed that on the truck we test drove last Saturday. The filler neck for the Diesel looked like it was plastic and so did the DEF filer cap. Both the DEF and the Fuel Tank caps were cheap plastic.
You would think when they charge $49000.00 and up for a new truck they would not be basically Plastic.
