    The gas cap on my 2010 Prerunner is getting hard to remove. I always tighten to the first click as advised, but it seems like every time I fuel up, I have to exert more force to remove the cap. Anyone ever have this problem?

    Make sure the fill tube is clean then put one or 2 drops of oil on the seal and spread it around.
    Should take care of it.
    See this quite often.
