Speedy Fuel Cap Test of Strength

1595 Views 18 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  inc
Step right up folks, and try your strength opening the fuel cap on this lovely beauty. Yes sir, looks are deceptive. She can purr like a cat but only when she's fed properly....

What is the deal with these fuel caps? I've done a search, and a lot of owners suffer with hand cramps from opening
during fueling. Is there a way to lube the cap to make it easier to open?

Sorry I can't help you Singring. I can turn my cap 'till it clicks a couple times & have never had any problems getting it back off. Having said that it will probably be stuck when I go to fill up this weekend.

I also don't have any problems with my steering lock that I have heard gives some people a hard time.
