    I'm in the market for a locking gas cap.

    Are there any brands people recommend or will any from the auto parts store work? Also what''s your reasoning behind your answer.

    Thank you in advance for your input

    I think Gates is the brand I have had on my last three vehicles. I bought mine on amazon.

    For my 2013, it was Stant - either the Stant 10504 Locking Fuel Cap or 10511, I don't recall which one.

    Do it!! No worries, it's an easy install. Only part that takes the longest is when your running the wires.

    I've gone through 2 Stants on my 07... first one wouldn't lock and the second one fell apart from the inside. Went to the Murry brand at O'Riellys Auto Parts and haven't had an issue since... been on for at least 4 years now.
