Help 166 Fuel Filler cap required

Right, got to put my hands up and confess that I forgot to put the fuel cap back on my motor after filling up last night and only noticed 1/4mile down the road !! Even when I retraced my route I couldn't find it......so I need a replacement asap, anybody got one for not much money??

I'm ready for the abuse, I couldn't feel anymore of a plonker than I already do.

I would not worry I think it something we are all scared we will do one day. I think the scrapys on eBay are your best bet.

Little tip, use the cap holder on the full filler flap, that way if you close the flap without putting the cap back you will notice it!

Re: 166 Fuel Filler cap required

or get a later model as the cap is attached to the body so you can't lose it!

It might be worth asking at the filling station as often they fall off right away and kind people hand them in. I've recovered a couple that way

I used to put mine on the pump to keep it off the bodywork but I've stopped doing that since I realised there was a hook on the filler door.
