Question Anybody Using The New Touchless Gas Cap?

Stant has a gas cap that you can add gas through without having to remove it. This would make it similar to the capless system on the new Chrysler models.

According the the application book, the Stant 41004 should fit a 2009 PT Cruiser. And since other caps will fill 2001 through 2009 PT's, this cap should fit on the older models. Or at least, I would thing so.

Are any of you using this or a similar touchless gas cap your PT? And if so, what year is your car and what cap are you using?

How many time a year do you actually remove yours? Now, a touchless car cover might be the ticket for you lol.

The Ford Taurus's have them, including my Sheriff's cruiser. Handy idea as we fill them up once or twice a day depending on mileage and always leave a full tank for the next driver. The gas cap door is new too. Although completely flat, there's no door pull in site. You push in and the door pops out to reveal the touchless gas cap.

Amazon.com: Stant 41004 InStant Fill Gas Cap (Not for use in CA, OR, WA): Automotive


After reading the reviews, I think I'd steer clear of it. I already get random P0456's. really though, how lazy can people be? Maybe they'll perfect it by the time I'm old and arthritic.

Same on my F150...no cap, just a flap that the nose of the pump nozzle unlocks by pushing in on two tabs.
Funny thing is...there's a supplied funnel under the back seat that duplicates tab unlocking application just in case you have to add fuel from an auxiliary container.
Guess Ford got tired of all those CELs being triggered by a loose gas cap.

I first noticed the touchless gas cap on the 300-S I bought my wife. It's really nice not having to get the smell of gas on your hand.



PS: The reviews on Amazon for the Stant touchless cap are horrible. I think I'll wait until someone makes a better one or until and can easily get my hands on an OEM touchless from a 2012 or newer Chrysler.
