    2018 Pro oil filler neck has two bolts on it. Trying to understand it; the filler neck is epoxied to the valve cover so what is the purpose for the two bolts? Can it be rotated? Installed the Genesis Offroad DBK and the filler neck is really close to the battery and saw on another thread where the battery broke off the filler neck from the valve cover.

    TIA

    I am not 100% sure but I think that tube used to be glued on instead of bolts.

    Isn't that just the extension bolted to the actual filler neck?

    I believe so but it looks like the lower half is molded into the valve cover instead of epoxied. Just wondering if they realized epoxy was a bad idea and changed it in the 18 models. Does the 16 & 17s look like this?

    I wouldn't worry myself over the oil filler tube necks design, you a beautifull new 2018 Tacoma consider yourself lucky not many people can afford to have a truck like this.

    Looks like it may be able to be rotated to create more room for your battery set up.
