View Full Version : Gas Cap Key Replacement

Anyone know where I can get an additional gas cap key for a 98' outback? I would like to have another just incase.

I did a search and came up with nothing.

A pipe wrench works great to get mine off when a gas attendant thinks that once it stops turning you need to keep going.

Can you post a photo of your gas cap for us? Is it just the normal round cap with the two holes?

Just the standard with 2 holes.

First love the sticker. I have seen the keys at different boat shops. I would also check west marine or overtons.

Yup - believe it's called a deck key or deck plate key.

I need that sticker. Awesome! I am sure making one wouldn't be that difficult?

I always thought this would be a funny sticker too but never had the brass to get one made.


Edit: Or better, get a few made, then sneakily stick them on unsuspecting buddies boats. Hmmmm

I had a friend quite a few years back that had a sign on his boat "No fats chicks allowed", but I like yours much better....though I would NEVER have the guts to get one on my boat!!! :)

I can just hear the ensuing conversation with my wife -- "so this is your way of telling me I'm fat, isn't it?".....no way I'm touching that with a ten-foot pole!!!!! :)

That sticker is hilarious. Although It would be offensive to my girlfriends "larger" friends. Although I would be pulling off bigger and better tricks........hmmmm.....

Got the sticker off eBay. Everyone with a boat should have one. Nothing like taking out your buddies and getting a high five and a $150 gas bill at the end day. The sticker explains what you shouldn't have to.

Thanks for all the replies.

Problem #1
Do not let a gas attendant fill your boats tank. Have them hand you the nozzle, fill it yourself so they don't spill gas all over, then hand it back and tighten your gas cap yourself.
