Fuel Caps

I feel stupid asking this. But when fueling up (I have locking fuel doors) - I noticed that there are no gas caps on the tank. Should there be? I feel there should be, but can't imagine what happened. Maybe left on when I had it serviced? Can someone tell me - am I supposed to have actual gas caps on the tank???

Geesh - thanks.

Yup .... should have caps. After I left one on top of a pump I now have fishing leaders attached to each cap and fastened to the inside of the fuel doors.

Yup ... but I'm assuming that technology was not available on an HR Neptune ... but I shouldn't assume.

Not all vehicles have gas caps.

If one of my vehicles didn't have a fuel cap, I would have asked the same question. My first thought was, Yes all vehicles has a fuel cap. But I am from the old school. Guess we never get too old to learn. Give me a old car and I will keep it running. I raise the hood on a new car, check all the fluids , close the hood and say, yep that is a motor.

I guess the question is .... is the vehicle the OP is talking about an HR Neptune 34 (from OP's About Me page) and, if so, what year?

Back to OP. it should be easy to tell if you need a gas cap or not. Look inside the fuel door at the filler tube, are there threads there where a cap would screw on? If there are then you need caps.
