I thought this was going to happen, just hasn't happened to me yet. Then again I've only filled it twice and my wife once since purchasing.

With that said I have a top of the line fuel filter water set up on my cummins and still prefer a capped fuel fill port.

I have an idea that will be pretty bad ass. You guys will love it. Basically I'm trying to design one where the bottom side is rubber. The whole assembly will have a stud that run thru it. Put on the cap rubber side down. Turn a wing nut and it will compress the rubber to expand and create a tight seal . And there will be some type of tether you bolt somewhere.

I probably shouldn't have said it. But whatever lol. I hav a little head start.

Pretty much every wheeled and track vehicle I have driven in the military uses this technique for its fuel filler systems. They work.

Re: Fixx for capless filler

The "Lowe's Solution" that ExcursionDiesel shared works like a charm. I did have to remove the green Diesel ring to get the cap to fit down.

Re: Fix for capless filler

Roadkill: Hey your comments about using gloves caught my attention. Is diesel more caustic than gas, that's why the gloves? What kind of gloves to you recommend.
