diesel/gas fuel cap

Is there a difference between diesel & gas fuel caps? Mine is suspiciously large making me think there are two...

Need to get another one as I drove off without mine the other day.

Also what are folks running for valving on their bilstein 7100's? I'm going to get my rears revalved; think I got them too stiff.

Thanks.

On the Tdi conversions I have done, I used a p/n703-1631 fuel cap from NAPA. It will hold pressure but not vacuum.

Noah, 360/85 seems to work pretty well for normally loaded 90's w/hard top. Some say 400/100 but that allways seems a little harsh to me.

Noah,
I am using a Stant locking gas cap that I bought at Pep Boys...mine is a 95 NAS ST converted to diesel and using the existing NAS petrol tank set up.

TTT again.
The cap I'm looking for is not threaded. Instead it has two opposing tabs that you line up with the filler tube and twist (think an inline fuse holder or something). The bottom part was plated metal not plastic and the cap part was a harb ABS type black plastic. It was locking but it's not relevant. I don't have the width of the filler spout on hand but I can safely say it's larger than a normal filler tube. It could easily fit the big-rig diesel pump guns.

Rob: checked out your lead, the parts counter lady showed me a traditional looking plastic threaded gas cap.

Anyone have any other ideas?

shocks: I had 360/80. Took em off and of course one had already lost its pressure. I have such bad luck with shocks. Getting them rebuilt. Trailing arm bushings are ~2-3 years old. Checked the a-arm bushings and those seemed fine. Going on the assumption that the bottom of the shock(s) were not snug to the axle.

Seems like the cap I saw on a 1985 110. Do you have a filter that you could remove from the filler tub/just under the cap?

Eric works at atlantic british, perhap he might have it being that he had the part number.
