Gas cap

I left my gas cap somewhere in California, noticed it at next fill up. So my question is how do you get a new one? Can a parts store look it up? I have a 39ft 2002 Safari Sahara with an ISS Cummins turbo diesel. Any suggestions? Thanks, Chuck

Measure the diameter of the fill pipe and go to an auto parts store. They will probably have one to fit. It might not be as pretty as the original, but it will keep water, dirt, and bugs out of the tank.

I lost track of mine once. Took the coach to a auto parts store and they gave me several to try in the parking lot. Found it, bought it.

The tank and fill neck is supplied by the chassis manufacturer. You should be able to find it through their listing.

Filler necks are another one of those common sae standards kind of things.

Not very many different ones so Google fuel cap for your chassis to get started then call your nearby store to see what they have.

I always suggest that you go to any fueling/gas station and tell the attendant that you left your fuel tank cap there. That usually produces a box full of fuel tank caps that have been left there(!). Choose a few that look like they might fit and test fit. Don't choose a locking cap!!!!

Got our replacement one at WalMart. Have no idea when we lost ours but when we saw it missing, we tried the one from our Jeep - it fit perfectly. So when we made a grocery run to WM we took the Jeep cap in & matched it to one from their stock.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Most D.pushers have a fuel fill on either side. If yours has 2 fuel fill's, just use the other cap and take it to walmart or your auto parts store for a match.
