gas cap replacement


Recommended Posts

I wish I could say it wasn't my fault but the end result is that my cas cap on a 2006 Response LXI is at the bottom of the lake and I need a replacment. I have two questions: 1. Where can I get an "affordable" replacement and 2. is there something I can use in the interim if obtaining a replacement is going to take some time?

You can buy one here.

I've heard of people putting a threaded PVC pipe plug into the hole as a temp. fix. I think 2" is the size.

Home depot, 96 cents, 1.5" PVC screw in plug. Very inexpensive insurance.

(I bought the 2", too big, it took a return trip to the store to get 1.5")

I got one at West Marine for $16.

Bummer on losing it to the lake...

I replaced mine with a locking gas cap. I still have my stainless one, but the chain is broken.

Agreed... the thread is 1.5 inch.

yup, bought a 2" pvc at HD as a precaution and it was too large. Bought the 1-1/2"....looks to be the right fit...it now sits in the glove box "just in case". (my boat is a 2003...not sure if they have changed).

Less than a $1 I believe.

To find an actual replacement cap - look up Kendor Marine in Franklin WI. It's barely two steps above a junk yard for boat parts. But they have tons and tons of parts. Including gas caps. They're on the web as GreatLakesSkipper if I remember right.

I don't think they have. My cousin's 2008 has the same gas cap as my 2002.
