One of the first things I noticed when I first started looking at the Titan. I had it on my Tundra. However it was the only thing I thought they could have added, after all there's one on the utility door.Step Up said:Why did Nissan leave the fuel tank so insecure? Anyway...anybody have a locking fuel cap? I just found one at Courtesy and I'm thinking of getting it.
Am I paranoid? :huh:
I don't particularly like locking doors that cover the gas cap. I think on the Tundra you have the hassel of having to pull out a key every time you gas up. Other vehicles have a release cable. If you are worried about people siphoning gas out, most new vehicles have anti-siphoning devices built into the tank. The locking doors offer very little protection. I've seen people show me how easy it is to get in with a screwdriver. I like what Nissan did with the Titan. No inconveience with keys or cable releases for those who don't like them, but a secure aftermarket cap available. If you buy a locking gas cap for the Tundra to have decent protection that means you have to unlock two things every time you gas up.Step Up said:Why did Nissan leave the fuel tank so insecure?

The locking cap is still better. Cable release doors are THE easiest for mischief makers to get through.Step Up said:I would prefer a release cable myself. I'm not worried about someone stealing fuel; I'm concerned with someone putting something into the fuel. You never know when some envirofreak will spot you at the shops or something....I also have to worry about a 12yo that I'm feuding with (I really should grow up :upsidedow ).
Disconnecting the negative battery lead for several hours won't reset the ECU and thus the "Check Engine" light? I'm surprised......this works on most vehicles.Doghouse said:A word of caution. If you do not get a proper seal on the gas cap, you will have the engine light turn on. $35 to reset (according to warning from dealer)
"The engine light will come on if you fill the truck with the engine running, or do not fully close the gas cap. You always have to go 3 clicks or else it costs you $35 to reset the light."
