I bought a locking gas cap from O'Reilly (formerly Hi-Lo Auto). Four days later, I went to remove the cap to fuel up, and almost couldn't unlock the cap.

As for right now, I don't lock the gas cap. It just looks like it's locked.

Stant Caps

Yes I had the same issue with po456 code so I purchased a Murray cap
at smog station because the smog tech said gas cap would not pass test
A short check engine code pop up again the same po456 so I bought a stant 11838 a put silicone dielectric grease on the rubber ring presto no
more code 11501 stant cap is locking cap I hope this helps someone with the same problem .

Yep! ...P0442, P0456, P0456... that's my collection... I want to make sure as I'm troubleshooting this EVAP issue that the Cap has integrity. I'm willing to spend the money, but more importantly, no matter what the cost, I want the Magical Golden Cap that seals up like the front door of your average nuclear submarine.

Yea I'm on my phone right now and couldn't figure out how to edit it on here.

Unfortunately I never had the original cap. PO had some random cap that I'm not sure was even made for a tj on it.. It worked for a while but eventually the p0455 code showed up

Squid90 I just recently got the gas cap code and replaced mine with a Stanton 10838 cap and haven't had any problems as of yet, this was only a few days ago though.
