You can go to any auto parts store and get an F-53 locking gas cap.

Before you buy one, try and stick a tube down your fuel neck. Most newer vehicles won't let you. I'd rather have someone try and fail, than get pissed off because there is a cap and either pry it off or do other damage. If you can't get a hose down the neck neither will they and most likely move on.

The locking gas cap isn't just to prevent fuel theft. It also prevents vandalism by denying the addition of foreign substances.

Universal locking gas cap key. If someone is going to vandalize your coach in that manner, a locking gas cap will not dissuade them.

The same can be said for a crow bar for your home but I bet you still lock them doors at night? Anyway maybe they move onto your rig if I have a locking cap. Just say'n

locks keep honest thieves honest.

I think siphoning is old school, now they just drill your tank.
But I use locking caps on my truck, they can get popped off super easy with a screwdriver but it still keeps it from being the low fruit on the tree.

Not if their intent is to add a foreign substance to your tank.
