Locking gas cap

2003 National Dolphin, W22 chassis. Any source for a locking gas cap, or maybe an idea for a compatible cap? Current gas prices got me thinking. Thanks.

The gas inlet is a standard size, so you should be able to go to an autoparts store and pick one up. They should have a cross-reference for your chassis.

I remember those days. when we all had to go get a locking gas cap. As of yet have not heard of anybody actually stealing gas. Teenagers and such nowadays have glued themselves to their phones. no time to steal gas.

Just take your gas cap to car parts store they can match one up. I took one off ours and a Ford F-250 fit ours.

If they want the gas bad enough they'll just punch a hole in the tank take what they want let the rest drain on ground.

I guess that would be another good thing about having a rig with air bags; it can be dropped down so low that not even that meth head is skinny enough to get under it.

A locking gas cap takes about 37 seconds to remove without its key. They were never a real security device. Besides that, since modern vehicles have anti drainback valves, the thieves just drill or punch a hole into the tank. Today’s gas thieves no longer siphon the fuel out.

Can you get me the part number you used? Mine has been lost and I have tried several in the local parts stores and none of them will work. Thanks Timmy.
