    Default FRAM locking gas cap at Target for $10.99

    Seems that nobody has posted about locking gas caps for a while now, and with the price of gas going up again I thought I would share a great deal that I got with you all.
    I could never find the correct model of the Stant gas cap that I've read about a long time ago on this site, but I noticed that Target carried Fram ones the other day. I used Fram's on-line application guide, and found out that their gas cap with model # of 504 should fit my 5.7L Tundra. I was pleasantly surprised that Target DID carry that model # and it was only $10.99!! I put it on, and it is working great so far (2 fill-ups so far). My check engine light has not come on at all, and it is not coming loose. No leaking either- as I've read about on other posts.
    I will be sure to post any updates if any problems arise, but so far it works great and I just wanted to share how easy and cheap it was to finally find a locking gas cap for my truck!
    Hope you all are doing great. It's been forever since I've posted on this site!

    I have a few questions to the people that have this gas cap in their truck before I get it. I have read in the manual somewhere about having the gas cap click just once or it else it will thow the check engine light on. So does it fit nice and tight? (lol) Any check engine light coming on for the guys that have this gas cap installed? Just want an update thats all. Thanks in advance!

    Sounds like a pain having to unlock you gas cap all the time. Is theft of gasoline really that much of a problem in your neck of the woods?

    Would hate it if one day the key got lost or it stopped unlocking properly.

    You can also pick up the Stant locking gas cap at Advanced Auto Parts for $15 if you don't have a Target near you. The part number is 11504 for the 5.7L. I believe Stant makes the locking cap that Toyota dealers sell at a huge markup. I've used Stant locking caps in all my vehicles and have never had an issue with CEL's. I've only had it on my Tundra a few days and it's working well so far.

    My understanding is that all newer vehicles have anti-siphon mechanism built in to them....I think the reason for the locking gas cap is to prevent someone from adding something to your tank....

    Most new vehicles have that set up. That's why now people just poke your plastic gas tank below.
    If you can't Dodge it, Ram it, then buy a Tundra
