Locking Gas Cap. Key Vent or Standard?

Somebody stole my gas cap. (or it might have fallen off my taillight. i'm gonna stick with the stolen part bc i think it is 90% true)


Looking at the Murray at OReilly. do i need a key vent or standard? i'm guessing i don't need to vent since i put gas in it every week. suggestions? i believe i got the standard (not locking) last time but don't remember..

Get a non-vented cap.

Yep it must be non-vented. Be aware that some locking gas caps still leak air through the key slot even if they are described as non-vented which will cause a check engine light.
When you have a choice, buy American.
