Not a security issue? There are screens down the filler neck to prevent siponing. And the design of the flaps will prevent some one from putting something down the tube. Or at least it's supposed to. Personally IDK. May find something down inside the tank you don't want. But then again I haven't had a locking gas cap for thirty years. And I only had one when the neighbor kiddo was siphoning off my gas at night from an old Falcon I owned back in the 70s'. Obviously he only used that method of filling up when he was out of money. Brat!
Could it be that the neck has the ability to accept a locking cap? Interesting to find out before I bash a good thing.
What about when you want to put an additive in your fuel system, like Seafoam or other cold weather, stabilizing or injector type additives? Will a funnel of the right O.D. work to get it in or not? Hopefully they have thought this device out thoroughly enough and designed it properly to allow the normal at home mechanic to do the type of stuff he needs to do to maintain the vehicle.
I'm not big on this idea at all.I use a locking gas cap on my mustang GT and my daily driver.
One....i know i will still have gas in my cars,two....i know know no one can put anything down the filler necks,and three....it works,why change it.
For those that forget their gas caps,that is there problem,and just think that most manufactures have some sort of tie type of connector that keeps the gas cap attached to the vehicle so you don't forget it ....LOL!,......or the problem of not shutting it tight..... How many of these people are out there....really!
