You might want to keep searching a tad longer, I'm know I've seen one mentioned recently either here, or the OS. The thread showed a few pics, and it worked with the OEM tether...
I want one myself, so gimme a chance to retrace my steps and I'll see if I can find it again

EDIT: BUT if I find it, and you're really happy about it, and post such in massive blazing red letters, I swear this will be the next search I perform:

Does it need it? A friend, who is a mechanic, filled his pickup just before returning it at the end of the lease. He said there was no way he could get a hose down to siphon out any fuel.

Gas is $4.50± a gallon here. I live in a high crime area. I think I "need" it, made my purchase thanks for the replys:thumbup:

I know the last 4 GM products I have owned/own have an anti-siphon device in the filler neck. It is basically a ball inside a perforated cage that lets the fuel go around, but prevents a hose from getting into the tank.

Granted, that won't stop someone who is pi$$ed at you from "hookin' a brother up", but they won't get your gas.

That is actually a roll over valve... But it does keep you from siphoning unless you can knock it apart.. But ya` know thieves have already solved the locking gas cap problem... Nowadays they just punch a hole in the bottom of the gas tank.... It is like a locked window, if they want in they will get in.

I found that out the hard way some jerko slashed the filler hose on my brand new Chrysler 300. Gas is now $4.89 and climbing up. Supposidly there closing Costco gas stations and its supposed to get up to $6 a gal

I love living in the civilized world.. $3.85 a gallon... mmmhmmm

I have always hated California, talk about a nanny state, it doesn't get much worse than that place... So bad they are starting to screw with the whole country. I guess California is to the other states what the United States is to the other countries..

FWIW it's not the siphoning that was my main concern. I'm stuck living in an area where stupid punks will think nothing of walking up to a guy's brand new Harley Davidson F-150 and keying the entire side and tailgate. I'm just hoping to keep the casual passerby from having an easy time pouring something in my tank.

Sounds more like you need to electrify the body of the vehicle....

Wouldn't mind doing that but if a child touches the electrified body of the vehicle more than likely it will kill the child. So its not a good idea. However you or I could wrap the goosneck on the fuel tank with insulating material than wrap it in a fine metal mesh and insulate the gas door and make both of those have 1a 50v and it would very much hurt, again you could injure a person or kill them. :thumbup:

Looks like you already got yours, so this is a little late, but here's the article I was talking about: Installing A Locking Gas Cap

Hope it's ok to post links to OS - if not I expect someone will capture my Roomba, reprogram it and send it back through time to kill me before I create the post :biggrin:

ROOMBA ATTACK!!! Naw, we aren't afraid of losing members to the other side so its cool...

From the OS:
Stant, model number 11506 is supposed to be the same as 10506, just a different
package; one is shrink-wrapped, the other is boxed.

Interesting scorched earth warfare approach. I wonder if Sun Tzu would approve?

Is it just me, or does making a bunch of sparks near the gas tank of the vehicle you're trying to protect seem like a little bit of a strategy error?

:explode: Ooooopsy
