    My fuel cap has started leaking the liquid gold from the tank. It seems to be leaking from the lock portion. I looked at Messicks, and they do not have a non locking cap. It was superseded by the locking cap. They have the locking cap in stock @ $77. To me, a fuel cap is a $15-20 part. The lock is what is leaking, why would I want another??

    I would bet that someone in the aftermarket makes one, but I have been unable to track one down with various searches.

    If anyone has a supplier, I would be grateful for the info.

    TIA.

    If it is leaking thru the vent they can be taken sometimes taken apart and fixed.
    Or is it simply the gasket ?

    As far as I know, only fuel out.


    It seems to be leaking out of the place you put the key in. The gasket looks like new. I will look at it to see if it looks like it can be taken apart.
