I'm diggin it and a nice price to boot too. Does it fit in the stock location dia?
The stock diameter round outside portion on the quarter panel is 4 inches. The gas cap flange outside diameter is 3.5 inches and the portion where you would splice a hose onto is 2 inches round. Its a nice piece as well. Stainless steel and the portion that unscrews has a nice o-ring seal so when the car is garaged you shouldnt have that gasoline smell. If you hook everything up right that is!:D I will also ground mine with a strap once I do it. I just wanted to get the cap now in case I need to modify anything before I paint the wagon in the next couple weeks. Its a way good deal for the price and I think it will work just fine.

OK maybe I'm slow but how do you unscrew it? Is there a tool?

I just read the info on the site, there is a separate key you need to buy.

Then do you connect that to the tank using a hose?
I plan on doing something like this, using a hose plus the original neck. I will also use a ground strap in case of sparks when filling up with gas. The only thing I am unsure of is I am going with a LS engine (LQ9 6.0) and I dont know if it needs to be vented or a sealed unit? Does anyone know for certain?? 63LSWAGON, BURKE, CHUCK, NOVA 404 are you there??? :D

Yes they make a tool. I didnt buy one, in fact I may buy one..I think you could even have it on your key chain. Otherwise I have something I can use to open it. I am not going to utilize the chain that connects to the cap..due to I dont want it dangling and scratching paint!!:eek:

Im not sure, Im not that far yet. What I have is a '06 LQ9 and I will be running the motor in stock form with the truck intake etc. Plan on using a Ricks tank or the new one as of recent..stock tank with the 2011 Camaro Fuel pump etc. What do you recommend?
Thanks

If you run an in-tank pump you will need to vent it. I've never had luck with a vented cap. Rick's make great tanks, I own two, but you can probably do it for less.

Stock tank and throw this in, way more than you need:

Sorry if this is a dumb question, but will this gas cap keep the gas from overflowing at the pump? i.e. will it stop the pump before the tank overflows when you are filling it up?
