how to remove locked gas cap
« on: Jul 24, 2014, 17:58:19 »
hi all,

I tried a search on this, but I couldn't find any topics posted earlier. I bought an old gas tank with a gas cap to which I don't have the key.
Any tips on how to remove it?

flat blade screwdriver should do the trick - find the right size to slide in where the key was and wiggle it down into the tumblers, might take a light touch with a hammer too, twist and release, then replace the cap

Call your local law enforcement. They're always eager to serve the shit out of you!
I'm pretty sure I'd know if I were being manipulated by some overwhelming, mesmerizing, quasi-divine entity anointed by its own cult of personality. Nobody could be that stupid. So who's ready for the Super Bowl?

A lot of old locking gas caps will open with a small screwdriver, they don't need the specific key for them. Or try your existing key.

If it's an old Honda keyed cap, then just about any key will do.  I open mine with the key from a 1978 Cadillac Coupe deVille.

Or take the tank to a locksmith.
