The outer part of the gas door came off?? I'd be bee-lining it toward the dealer tomorrow. They might not know it yet, but they absolutely would be replacing that!

Be prepared to be called a liar SH. We all know that something like that would never happen to a Toyota. You must own a GM or something. ;)

Thanks for the warning, I'll keep an eye on mine.

I think that the embarassment of having to put my gas cap on and then having to reinstall my banged up gas door would be worth at least a new door and 2 free oil changes.

no i dont want them touching my truck i will do my own oil changes i dont trust them ... last time i had my truck at the dealer (truck had a oil leak from the first day i bought it ) they forgot to put the oil cap on getting my engine bay covered with oil i will ask them to order me a new cap and i will have them just install it in front of me .. if they wont do this i will have a talk with the service manager AGAIN...but normally they are pretty good to me just had some bad luck with my tundra all my prior cars were done in a timely manor and a good job done .. but that dont mean i trust them

Just looked at my gas door cover. How is it attached? Are there some clips or something because I can't tell just from looking at it.

Not only that, but they'll put the wrong oil in. And once it's done, you can't prove what kind of oil is in the engine. You'll never be the wiser. I'm betting that if you take your truck in for 10 oil changes, you'll get at least three or four different grades and weights of oil during that time.
